A good Samaritan who tried to intervene in an argument between a man and a woman was stabbed to death in Koreatown early Wednesday, and the killer was being sought, police said.
The assault occurred in the 200 block of South Serrano Avenue around 3 a.m., said Officer Norma Eisenman, a Los Angeles Police Department spokeswoman.
Eisenman said the victim, a man in his mid-30s, tried to intervene in an argument between the suspect and his ex-girlfriend. The man turned on the victim and stabbed him before fleeing, Eisenman said, adding that the victim died in a hospital.
News footage from the scene showed a man handcuffed and in police custody, but Eisenman said the stabbing suspect remained at large.
