WHITTIER — A Whittier man was behind bars Thursday on suspicion of attempted murder after stabbing and seriously injuring another man late Wednesday.
Roy Zamora, 18, was being held in lieu of $1 million bail at the Whittier Police Department’s jail, according to county booking records.
A 911 caller reported a stabbing just before 8 p.m. Wednesday in the 8400 block of Milton Avenue, Whittier police Lt. Carlos Solorza said.
“On arrival, (officers) found a victim suffering from multiple stab wounds to his back,” the lieutenant said. He was hospitalized in serious condition but expected to survive.
Through the course of the investigation, police identified Zamora as a suspect and arrested him without a struggle at his home in Whittier about 3 a.m. Thursday, Solorza said.
The alleged motive was not available early Thursday.
