AZUSA — Two young men walking to a liquor store were attacked by a group and stabbed several times Thursday night.
Sgt. Dave Buckner of the sheriff’s San Dimas station said the men are in stable condition.
The stabbing in the unincorporated county area was reported to the station at 8:34 p.m.
Buckner said the two young men were walking northbound on Lark Ellen Avenue, approaching Gladstone Street when they were confronted by four to five men.
He didn’t know what led to the stabbing.
One of the victims, a 22-year-old, was stabbed in his ribs and back while the other victim, who is either 18 to 17, was stabbed in the arm, hand and back, according to Buckner.
Their assailants fled after the stabbing. He said the victims ran on Lark Ellen Avenue then Gladstone Street.
“After they were stabbed, they called a family member who picked them up and took them to a hospital,” Buckner said.
He said hospital officials notified a local police department which then called the San Dimas station.
The suspects were only described as four to five Latinos.
