A 28-year-old man was stabbed Sunday night outside a North Hollywood bar, and now detectives are asking the public to help them identify the suspect or suspects.

Daniel Farelo had been a patron at a bar in the 12100 block of Vanowen Street when he stepped outside of the building to the rear, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. When Farelo returned inside the bar he had multiple stab wounds and had a knife sticking out of his chest.

The only bar on this block is called El Merengue Bar, located at 12126 Vanowen Street, however the LAPD have not confirmed this was the location of the fatal stabbing.

Emergency responders were called to the bar, however they were not able to revive Farelo, who was pronounced dead at the scene.
