A Culver City man accused of stabbing a woman in a laundromat south of Koreatown is scheduled to be arraigned March 26 on attempted murder and robbery charges, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced Tuesday.
Lino Robert Colon, 37, also faces allegations that he used a knife and inflicted great bodily injury.
Colon allegedly confronted the victim as she used a coin-exchange machine the evening of March 1. He allegedly grabbed the woman’s purse and stabbed her in the neck with a knife, then fled the scene with the purse.
Colon was arrested a week later by Los Angeles police and has remained behind bars since then.
If convicted as charged, he could face up to life in state prison, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
