7 Stabbed At Pasadena House Party
Seven people were stabbed during a house party in Pasadena early Saturday morning, police say.
According to City News Service, there were nearly 200 people in attendance at the party on the 3100 block of East California Boulevard when the suspect, 21-year-old San Gabriel resident Aaron Hong Te "bumped into someone at the party and a fight quickly erupted," said Pasadena police Lt. John Mercado. "During the fight, Te produced a knife and started to stab people who were standing close to him." ABC-7 notes that there was "pushing and shoving" before the stabbings ensued.
Police arrived at the scene around 3:10 a.m. this morning, and found the suspect in front of the home, according to CBS L.A. At least two of the stabbed victims identified him to police, and Te was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, and booked at the Pasadena city jail.
NBC L.A. reports that all of the victims were described as Asian males in their early 20's. According to police, two of the seven victims were in critical condition, while the rest suffered moderate to severe injuries. All are expected to survive, however.
NBC L.A. also notes that the party was promoted on social media, and that it's unclear whether Te knew the victims prior to the stabbing.
