One Person Transported to Hospital After Stabbing

An investigation is underway following a late-night stabbing that has left one person hospitalized in stable condition.

On June 20 at about 11p.m., an employee of Wendy’s, located at 1575 N. Victory Place, called the Burbank Police Dept. to report a man standing in the drive-through lane claiming to have been stabbed. The first police officers to arrive found the victim who was suffering from multiple stab wounds.

The victim told officers he and the suspect were both homeless. The two had an argument that turned physical when the suspect stabbed the victim multiple times.

The victim is a 52-year-old man who was treated at the scene by officers and Burbank Fire Dept. paramedics before being transported to a local hospital. He is listed in stable condition and is expected to survive.

Multiple officers responded to the area and searched for the suspect but did not locate him. Investigators are canvassing the area for evidence and collecting surveillance video.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Burbank Police Dept./Investigation Division at (818) 238-3210.
