A woman was fatally stabbed Tuesday in Arcadia, and a man believed to be a family member was taken into custody, police reported.
Officers were sent to an apartment complex in the 900 block of Arcadia Avenue at 8:24 a.m. on a report of "a female not breathing," said Arcadia police Sgt. Kollin Cieadlo.
"On arrival, officers encountered a female in her mid-30s inside of an apartment suffering from multiple stab wounds," Cieadlo said. "Arriving officers were directed to a possible suspect who had just left the location."
The name and age of the man -- who Cieadlo said "appears to be a family member of the victim" -- were not immediately released, nor was the name of the victim, who died at Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena.
Anyone with information on the case was urged to call Arcadia police at (626) 574-5151, or Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS.
