Man wounded, attacker sought in Rosemead stabbing

ROSEMEAD — A Rosemead man suffered stab wounds Friday during a fight with a man he told investigators was an old acquaintance from high school, officials said.
The stabbing was reported about 4:20 p.m. along Bartlett Avenue, just north of Garvey Avenue, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Ismael Chavez said.
The victim, a 27-year-old man, told deputies he was walking down the street when a car pulled over and the driver — a man he knew in high school — got out of the car, the lieutenant said.
The attacker then challenged the victim to fight, Chavez said.
“During the fight, he noticed he was bleeding profusely from the abdomen,” he said. “He was stabbed multiple times.”
The wounded man went home and called for help, but would not give authorities the name of his attacker, Chavez said.
The suspect was described only as a white man in his mid- to late-20s wearing a white T-shirt and black pants.
Chavez said the victim’s injuries were not considered to be life-threatening.
Detectives from the sheriff’s Temple Station are handling the investigation.
