Woman Fatally Stabbed Near USC Campus
A woman was fatally stabbed Friday night just two blocks from the USC campus with a broken bottle, just days after Bryan Barnes plead guilty for the murder of two students back in 2012.
The attack happened around 7:50 p.m. on the 1200 block of West 36th Place in Exposition Park, and reports say the woman, in her 30s, was being chased down the street by a man. The victim was taken to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead, according to the LA Times.
Sergeant Carlton Brown of the LAPD told City News Service that the suspect in the attack was detained for an unrelated offense later that night around 11:30 p.m. near La Salle Avenue and West 35th Street.
USC sent an emergency alert to its staff and students warning them to stay away from the area due to a "police-related incident in progress." Despite the proximity to the campus, the incident does not involve any USC students and appears to be a domestic dispute.
