Weho Daily is reporting on a stabbing that took place early this morning that has caused confusion, possibly because the victim crossed from Los Angeles into West Hollywood after being injured. A 3:01 a.m. call was logged at Sunset and Fairfax in L.A. regarding "a stabbing victim who tried to board a city bus there." However, at 3:13 a.m. a call was placed to the West Hollywood Sheriff's Station regarding a stabbing victim at Laurel and Fountain. "The good news is that it appears the Sheriff may have a suspect," and preliminary investigations point to the assailant actually being the one boarding the bus within L.A. "A better narrative of what happened tonight will likely have to wait until the Sheriff sorts everything out," notes Weho Daily.
