UPDATED: Hollywood Fight Leads to Stabbing

One man is injured after a Thursday morning attack on Hollywood Boulevard near Bronson Avenue.

A man was recovering Thursday from three stab wounds inflicted during a group fight in Hollywood, police told Patch.

The melee among a "handful" of people occurred shortly after midnight Thursday on Hollywood Boulevard near Bronson Avenue, LAPD Lt. Marc Reina said.

Police in the area spotted a group fight, the lieutenant said, but when they approached the group, the scrap was just ending.

Police walked up to one man, who then realized he had been stabbed; he pointed out a suspect, Reina said.

The suspect ran off but was chased and quickly caught, Reina told Patch.

The 19-year-old suspect, was taken to a station for questioning and the 18-year-old victim was taken to a hospital, where he was expected to recover, police said.

Reina told Patch that the weapon used appeared to be a makeshift knife.

A motive for the stabbing was under investigation.

Thanks for bringing that to our attention, George. The article has been changed to reflect the correct spelling.

That area has all those loser runaways. Why don't the police take them off the street and give them counseling or something -- just don't let them hang around and wait for the next fight. Preventative measures need to be implemented there. Too many runaways with nothing to do except skateboard and act stupid. . . . . . . .

What I've noticed is My Friend's Place near that area isn't exactly like my friends places, it's all locked up and there are always kids waiting outside. If my friends treated me that way, I'd be looking for new ones. It's an eyesore, wish they'd make it a real open facility, especially at night. Or change the name to something without the word friend in it, it isn't friendly from the public's perspective, especially when you're sitting in your car at the off ramp.

Thank you Patch for alerting us to the on going crimes in our Hollywood streets. At Mayoral Debates Garcetti's mantra is how he saved Hollywood, how great it is now, how it has come back . And we are all supposed to walk around this safer LA LA Land Hollywood, he supposedly is responsible for, and ride our bikes everywhere in his Faux Utopia. He can only hide, deny and lie for so long..His Phony PR or Truth...I'll take The Truth. Thank you...
