The Santa Monica Police Department arrested two individuals Thursday afternoon in connection with a stabbing that occurred near the Santa Monica Public Library.

Lt. Candice Cobarrubias said police officers were near the downtown library Wednesday at about 7 p.m. when they observed a man bleeding profusely from his arm and provided emergency medical aid in order to prevent significant blood loss. The man also had a cut on his neck and a significant cut to his brachial artery, Cobarrubias said. He was
transported to a local hospital for medical treatment and is in stable condition.

SMPD officers identified two suspects in the stabbing incident and arrested them at about 1:30 p.m. Thursday.

“Because the investigation is on-going, the Santa Monica Police Department is not releasing the names of the two subjects taken into custody,” Cobarrubias said. “More information will be forthcoming as the investigation continues.”
