A man suffered multiple stab wounds when he was attacked, allegedly by four people, on Oceanfront Walk at Rose Avenue on Venice beach, a police sergeant said today.
The stabbing occurred at 9:55 p.m. Saturday on Oceanfront Walk at Rose Avenue, said Sgt. Robin Richards of the Los Angeles Police Department's Pacific Station.
Police were contacted by the victim from the Venice Breeze Suites hotel about 14 blocks away from the scene.
"He was stabbed several times,'' Richards said. "He said he was jumped by four male Hispanics.'' The wounds were in his back and torso.
The victim was transported to a hospital where "indications are that he will be OK,'' the sergeant said.
No suspects were in custody and the motive was unknown, Richards said.
