Man dies after stabbing in Sante Fe Springs; Police looking for 2 suspects

(FOX 11 Los Angeles)

The Whittier Police Department is investigating a deadly stabbing that occurred in Santa Fe Springs Wednesday afternoon. Two suspects remain on the loose.

The incident happened at about 3:30 p.m. in the area of Telegraph Road and Laurel Avenue. Police say they received a call of a "male bleeding on the street" and when officers arrived, found an unresponsive adult man suffering from stab wounds.

Officers began performing CPR on the victim until medics with the Santa Fe Springs Fire Department arrived and transported the man to a local trauma center where he was pronounced dead. The victim's identity has not been revealed.

Police say two suspects were seen leaving the crime scene before officers arrived. One suspect is described as a Hispanic man about 6-feet tall with a goatee, possibly wearing an orange striped shirt and was last seen riding an older gray BMX-style dirt bike.

Authorities describe the second suspect as a Hispanic man, shorter than the first suspect, with a light complexion and had a shaved head.

The incident prompted nearby Graves Middle School to temporarily go on lockdown.

Anyone with information regarding this stabbing is asked to call Detective Kristian Rios at 562-409-1850 or the Crime Tip Line at 1-800-222-8477.
