GLENDALE — Four reputed gang members were stabbed Monday night after allegedly instigating a brawl with a group of men and women who were strolling around a South Glendale neighborhood, police said.
A man who got caught up in the incident was in a coma Tuesday morning from blunt-force trauma to his head, but later awoke and began talking, Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said. The four reputed gang members suffered multiple stab wounds and were taken to Los Angeles-USC Medical Center, he added.
Three alleged gang members, one of whom is a teenager, were arrested in connection with the stabbing incident, which has prompted Police Chief Ron De Pompa to deploy gang and Special Enforcement Detail detectives to the area to eliminate any gang problems, Lorenz said.
