A man was stabbed in the throat during a fight in the parking lot of the Americana at Brand mall in Glendale last night. The stabbing occurred around 6:45 p.m. Wednesday on the basement level of the mall's parking structure, reports KTLA. According to Glendale police, the suspect stabbed the man after a fight.

The suspect then fled on foot.

The victim was transported to a hospital, after the first officer who arrived on the scene packed the wound with gauze. The injury was not considered life-threatening.

While the relationship of the two men or what instigated the incident is not yet known, police say the men knew each other. Police spokeswoman Tahnee Lightfoot tells the L.A. Times, the stabbing was "not a random act."
