Domestic Worker Stabbed By Intruder

 

Los Angeles: On July 28, 2004, at 11:00 p.m., West Valley officers responded to an "Ambulance Cutting" radio call at a residence in the 5300 block of Encino Avenue. Upon arrival at the location, the officers were met by Alba Canton, an employee of the owner of the residence, who had been at the residence doing domestic work.

Mrs. Canton advised that she and her husband, 44-year old Carlos Canton, were in the residence when a male intruder attacked her husband from behind. The suspect stabbed Mr. Canton several times and then ran from the location.

Mrs. Canton called 911, and Carlos Canton was transported by Los Angeles City Fire Department personnel to a nearby hospital, where he was admitted in critical condition. His condition has been upgraded to stable.

The investigation has revealed the suspect entered the residence while the victim and his wife were not in the home, and he may have been surprised by them, when they returned to the home. The suspect is described as a male, with a stocky build, wearing dark clothing, possibly a security guard uniform.

The home is owned by John Ondrasik, a singer with the band "Five For Fighting."

Mr. Ondrasik and his family were out of town at the time of the incident.

No suspects have been identified or arrested in connection with this crime and anyone with information is asked to call West Valley Homicide Detectives, at 818-342-0449 during business hours or a 24 hour toll free number is available, at 1-877-529-3855.
