Police are looking for two women believed to have stabbed a 24-year-old man to death in Highland Park. Bryan Wilfredo Najarro, 24, was found stabbed near North Figueroa Street and Avenue 59 at about 2:30 a.m. Wednesday morning. Najarro had been stabbed several times, and was pronounced dead at the scene by LAFD officials, according to a release from the LAPD.

There have been conflicting witness reports. Some witnesses said they saw two women flee the scene, while other witnesses said that Najarro was attacked by men. Police say that there are still more witnesses that have yet to be interviewed, KTLA reports.

Police are currently looking for two women in connection with Najarro's killing. The women have been described as Hispanic and in their 30s, and were last seen wearing dark-colored clothing. The women were reported to have left the scene in a black sedan, headed south on Avenue 59.

Two women who were detained earlier because their car matched that description were later released, ABC 7 reports.
