WHITTIER >> Police are looking for a man suspected of stabbing at least three people at an adult soccer league match at El Camino High School in unincorporated South Whittier on Sunday afternoon, officials said.
The stabbings occurred just after noon at the high school’s soccer field after a brawl broke out between the more than 20 people in attendance, said Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Sgt. Rene Garcia.
Garcia compared the scene to a “benches-clearing brawl” in professional baseball until the stabbings took place. No one involved in the brawl was injured, Garcia said.
Sheriff’s deputies continue to search for the suspect, a Hispanic man in his 20s, Garcia said.
The three victims did not suffer life-threatening wounds and have been taken to local hospitals, Garcia said. Two were stabbed in the upper torso and one was stabbed in his right arm, Garcia said.
