Police are currently investigating the fatal stabbing of a person that occurred early Wednesday morning at the intersection of Michigan Ave. and N. Soto St.
A LAPD spokesperson told Boyle Heights Beat that a 911 caller reported the attack shortly after 6 a.m. LAPD officers arrived on the scene several minutes after the incident occurred and medics rushed the victim to a hospital; they were confirmed dead.
The name, gender, ethnicity, and age of the victim have yet to be released. Boyle Heights Beat contacted the LA Medical Examiner-Coroner for additional information but did not get an immediate response.
LAPD said the suspect has only been described as a Hispanic man. According to a report by Citizen, the crime safety alert application, the assailant was wearing a baby blue shirt and fled the scene on a bicycle.
This is the 19th homicide reported by Boyle Heights Beat in 2023. Last month, a woman was shot and killed at Ross Valencia Park.
