Transient Arrested in Fatal Stabbing of Loss Prevention Associate

Police arrested a transient suspected of fatally stabbing a loss prevention associate outside a Food 4 Less grocery store in Sylmar, California, on Sunday afternoon, authorities said. The stabbing followed a dispute outside the store at Glenoaks Boulevard and Hubbard Street, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Police said that the suspect attempted to grab a “quantity of beer” from the store before he was confronted by loss prevention. “It appears that the victim’s brother was coming to pick him up from work … and pulled up to the curb and actually observed the incident occur,” Lieutenant Mike Kozak said. The suspect was not immediately identified. A manager who answered the phone at Food 4 Less said he was unaware of the incident. A police dispatcher said investigators are still canvassing the scene for evidence.  [Source: Los Angeles Times]
