From the LA times:
A man stabbed 10 times Saturday night near Venice’s famed boardwalk was expected to survive, Los Angeles police said Sunday.
The victim, described as a transient who frequented the area, was attacked near Ocean Front Walk and Breeze Avenue about 10 p.m., Lt. Steve Lurie said.
The exact location and other details remained sketchy Sunday.
“He was walking away from where it happened when people saw him” and called 911, Lurie said.
The man, whose name was not released, underwent surgery and was recovering Sunday, Lurie said. The victim had not provided a good description of his attackers, beyond that it was a group of men, Lurie said, and police had not identified anyone suspected of the crime or a motive.
A man was stabbed in the neck Saturday night around 10 p.m. at Breeze and Ocean Front Walk. The suspects were described as 5 male hispanics who attacked the victim and fled down the boardwalk. The victim needed an ambulance and was not cooperative at all with police. The many video cameras in the area will tell the story that the victim doesn’t want to help LAPD with. It is not known if the victims injuries are life threatening.
