“Apparently the man was stabbed in the street on 170th, out in front of the shopping center,” said Lancaster Station Spokesman Michael Rust. “He walked into the store [Luxor Market] and asked the clerk to call 9-1-1.”

Rust said the 32-year-old man was stabbed an unknown amount of times in the upper torso and abdomen area and was bleeding out when he staggered into the store to ask for help. The man was airlifted to a local hospital and his condition is unknown, Rust said. Officials are not releasing the identity of the stabbing victim at this time and are still trying to identify the motive for the stabbing.

“It’s still an ongoing investigation,” Rust said. “If anybody has any information, we would like them to please call us… it’s a pretty remote area out there in Lake LA, but there may have been somebody driving by.”
