Man stabbed to death, woman hurt in Lakewood robbery

A man was stabbed to death on Tuesday and a woman was injured during a robbery in Lakewood, authorities said.

The crime occurred at 1:18 a.m. at the intersection of Del Amo Boulevard and Violeta Avenue on the Lakewood-Cerritos border, said Deputy Wally Bracks of the Sheriff's Information Bureau.

Jesus Nunez, 38, died at a hospital, the coroner's office reported. His home town was not known. The woman was treated at the scene for minor injuries.

"The victims were walking eastbound on Del Amo Boulevard, on the south sidewalk, when a vehicle drove up to them,'' a sheriff's statement said.

"Three suspects exited the vehicle and assaulted the two victims,'' the statement said. "During the robbery, personal items were stolen from the victims. After the robbery the three suspects entered the dark-colored sedan and drove southbound on Violeta Avenue and out of view.''

No descriptions were released of the suspects -- a man and two women -- or their vehicle. Anyone with information on the case was urged to call homicide detectives at (323) 890-5500.
