Police searching for man who stabbed employee at Mission Community Hospital

The Los Angeles Police Department is searching for a man who stabbed an employee at Mission Community Hospital in Panorama City Monday evening.

Police responded to the hospital at 14850 Roscoe Blvd. around 6:50 p.m. for a report of a man armed with a knife.

The hospital was placed on lockdown as officers searched the building for the assailant and any possible victims.

Officers discovered one stabbing victim who was taken to a different hospital for treatment of their wounds. That person’s condition is unclear at this time, but hospital staff said they were transported in stable condition.

The hospital released a statement that said the victim did not know their attacker.

It’s unclear where on the property the attack happened, but video from Sky5 showed crime tape at the entrance to the hospital’s lobby.

Police say the suspect fled the hospital and remains outstanding.

He’s been described as Hispanic man between 40 and 50 years old, 5 feet, 7 inches and 140 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black hat, a black hoodie, black shirt and a black backpack.

Anyone with information about the attack is asked to contact the Los Angeles Police Department.
