UPDATED: Hollywood Fight Leads to Stabbing

A man was recovering Thursday from three stab wounds inflicted during a group fight in Hollywood, police told Patch.

The melee among a "handful" of people occurred shortly after midnight Thursday on Hollywood Boulevard near Bronson Avenue, LAPD Lt. Marc Reina said.

Police in the area spotted a group fight, the lieutenant said, but when they approached the group, the scrap was just ending.

Police walked up to one man, who then realized he had been stabbed; he pointed out a suspect, Reina said.

The suspect ran off but was chased and quickly caught, Reina told Patch.

The 19-year-old suspect, was taken to a station for questioning and the 18-year-old victim was taken to a hospital, where he was expected to recover, police said.

Reina told Patch that the weapon used appeared to be a makeshift knife.

A motive for the stabbing was under investigation.
