CA - Man fatally stabbed in Bell Gardens after fight involving teen girl

No arrests have been made. What about the father and brother of the girl who killed this man? You can figure out who stabbed who later. Taking the law into your own hands is wrong, illegal and should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Officials say the man was stabbed during a confrontation with the father and brother of the girl, 15, who said he had made sexual advances toward her.

A man was fatally stabbed Friday afternoon after he was confronted by the father and brother of a teenage girl who told them he had made sexual advances as she walked on a busy Bell Gardens street, authorities said today.

The stabbing took place about 3:43 p.m. in the 7700 block of Eastern Avenue near Clara Street shortly after the 15-year-old girl ran home and told her family she had just been accosted, Los Angeles County sheriff's officials said.

Shortly after, they said, the girl's father and brother went out in search of the man. They apparently located him quickly and a fight broke out. During the fight the man was stabbed, authorities said.

He was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
- And they took the law into their own hands and murdered a man, now they need to be in prison until they die.

Sheriff's Deputy Rick Castro said no arrests had been made. Investigators have not determined who stabbed the man, he said. Bell Gardens police officers initially responded to the scene, Castro said.
- This is just insane... If this was a man stabbing another man and it wasn't sexual in nature, they'd be in jail right now, waiting bond or a court date. Now we have possibly two killers roaming the streets.

The name of the man was not released pending notification of next of kin, county coroner's investigator Betsy Magdaleno said today.

It was unknown how the father and brother had identified the man as the one who allegedly accosted the teenager. Bell Gardens police declined to answer questions about the incident. A sheriff's deputy in the department's media relations office said she did not have more details to release.
