Worker at Mission Community Hospital in Panorama City stabbed; police search for suspect


PANORAMA CITY, LOS ANGELES (KABC) — A hospital worker was stabbed in Panorama City Monday evening, prompting a lockdown of the facility, according to authorities.

Officers with the Los Angeles Police Department’s Mission Division were sent to Mission Community Hospital on Roscoe Boulevard shortly before 7 p.m.

The suspect – a man in his 40s or 50s – was armed with a knife and stabbed the worker at the entrance of the hospital, police said.

The employee had to be sent to another hospital with a trauma center for treatment.

A doctor at the Panorama City hospital told Eyewitness News that other doctors and nurses jumped into action to help the victim, who is in stable condition.

Police said the suspect was chased out of the hospital by good Samaritans but wasn’t apprehended. He reportedly took off running along Willis Avenue, according to witnesses.

The lockdown was later lifted.
