Multiple Stabbing Investigation

Los Angeles: Three men are in custody accused of stabbing a security guard and three vendors.

On July 31, 2005, at about 5:55 p.m., Northeast Area patrol officers responded to a stabbing call at “Gate E” at Dodger Stadium.  Officers discovered that three security guards and approximately 10 to 15 vendors were involved in a dispute over unlicensed merchandise.  That dispute turned into a fight, where four people were stabbed, including one security guard.  The injured were transported to a local hospital and are expected to recover from their injuries.

The security guards involved work for Black Hawk Security and are contracted by Sport Service, a company that sells official Dodger merchandise.  The Los Angeles Dodgers do not employ the guards.

Three of the vendors were arrested for Assault with a Deadly Weapon.  They are 47 year-old Vincent Thomas Hill of Los Angeles, 40 year-old Melvin Benard Robinson of Pomona, and 51 year-old Adrian Renald Herron of Los Angeles.

Anyone with information is requested to contact Northeast Area Detectives at 213-485-2566.  On weekends and during off-hours, call the 24-hour toll free number at the Detective Information Desk, at 1-877-LAWFULL (1-877-529-3855).
