Officers arrested Eric Petrossian, 24, of Burbank Sunday for allegedly stabbing two men near Sunset Canyon and Orange Grove around 4 p.m. Saturday.

According to police, the men were stabbed multiple times during an argument. One victim drove himself and the other man about two blocks away to the 1000 block of east Angeleno Avenue before dialing 911.
