Gang Attack Leaves Victim Stabbed to Death


 

Los Angeles: On Friday, April 26, 2002, at 3:45 P.M., Foothill Area patrol officers responded to a radio call of an "Ambulance ADW" at the park at Astoria Street and Borden Street in Sylmar. Upon arrival officers discovered the victim David Sanchez, a 17 year-old resident of Sylmar, who had been stabbed in the upper torso. Los Angeles Fire Department Paramedics transported Sanchez to the hospital where he died as the result of his injuries.

The preliminary investigation revealed that several males Hispanics, shouting gang names, surrounded the victim and began hitting and kicking the victim. The suspects armed themselves with knives and stabbed the victim before fleeing.
