Man, woman sought for questioning after man stabbed in Burbank

BURBANK, Calif. (KABC) -- Burbank police detectives are looking for a man and woman involved in a fight with another man who was stabbed near an AMC 16 movie theater.

Around 10:35 p.m. Monday, Burbank police officers and fire department paramedics responded to the 200 block of N. First Street on reports of a man bleeding from his head.

When authorities arrived, a 40-year-old man was found suffering from stab wounds to his head, neck and torso. He was unresponsive and taken to a local hospital where he underwent surgery and was listed in critical condition. By Tuesday morning, he was upgraded to stable condition.

The preliminary investigation revealed the victim got into a fight with a man and woman on the First Street sidewalk, between Palm and Orange Grove avenues.

At some point, the fight spilled out onto the street before bystanders intervened and broke it up. The parties walked away from the scene, and the pair was last seen walking south on First Street. A weapon was not recovered at the scene, authorities said.

Investigators want to speak with the man and woman involved in the fight. The man is described as a white or Hispanic person between 25 and 35 years old, with short dark hair. The woman is described as Hispanic, about 25 years old, with long curly hair.

Anyone with more information was asked to call Burbank Police Detective Henry Garay at (818) 238-3210 or Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477 to remain anonymous.
