GLENDORA (CBSLA.com) — Authorities Thursday were investigating the fatal stabbings of two homeless men whose bodies were found near a car wash in the San Gabriel Valley.
A witness flagged down a Glendora Police lieutenant and said he heard screaming in the area just before 2 a.m. in the 200 block of West Route 66, near Vermont Avenue, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.
Investigators believe the men were camping at the car wash when they were attacked. When police arrived on scene, the unidentified victims had suffered several stab wounds and were pronounced dead at the scene.
The murders were being investigated by the Sheriff’s Department and Glendora Police. Detectives say witnesses reported a man running from the scene.
“He was male, kind of a stocky build, and he was last seen running northbound from here,” Lt. Eddie Hernandez of the LASD said.
A motive for the stabbing was unclear.
The last homicide in Glendora took place in 2009, according to police.
Anyone with information should call the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau, (323)890-5500 or Crime Stoppers, (800)222-TIPS.
