PASADENA — An Arcadia man stabbed and wounded an acquaintance during a fight at Central Park early Sunday, police said.
Anthony Freeman, 30, was booked on suspicion of attempted murder in connection with the stabbing, Pasadena police Lt. Diego Torres said.
The stabbing victim, a homeless man in his mid-30s, suffered significant wounds to his upper body but was hospitalized in stable condition and expected to survive, Torres said.
The two men became involved in an argument over an unknown issue which escalated into a fight about 4:30 a.m. at the park, 275 S. Raymond Ave., Torres said.
The suspect pulled a knife and stabbed the victim in the torso, he said.
Officers arrested the alleged attacker without struggle shortly after the stabbing, the lieutenant said. His name was not available early Sunday pending completion of the booking process.
According to county booking records, Freeman was being held in lieu of $1 million bail pending his initial court appearance.
