PASADENA >> A man stabbed and wounded two homeless men in Pasadena on Saturday night, officials said.
Police jailed Alejandro Dunnick, 46, of Pasadena on suspicion of attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon immediately following the double-stabbing, which took place about 8:30 p.m. at Lake Avenue and Villa Street, according to Pasadena police Lt. Mark Goodman.
“Officers were dispatched to the area on report of several males fighting,” he said. “On arrival, two victims were found with injuries to their legs. One of the victim was also found to have sustained an injury to his abdomen.”
Officers detained Dunnick at the scene and found he had a folding knife, Goodman said.
One of the victims, a 50-year-old homeless man, was treated at the scene for cuts to his abdomen and one of his legs. The second victim, a 60-year-old homeless man, was taken to a hospital with a puncture wound to one of his legs.
The stabbing followed a long-running dispute between Dunnick and the victims, Goodman added.
“The victims stated that the suspect has confronted them regularly over the past several years because they are homeless,” he said.
