Within Hours, Two Nurses Stabbed in Two Separate Incidents

Within Hours, Two Nurses Stabbed in Two Separate Incidents

SYLMAR – A man entered the Olive View-UCLA Medical Center early Sunday morning and stabbed one of its nurses.  The calm in the northern Los Angeles neighborhood was interrupted around 2 a.m. when Ramiro Carnalla, 26, somehow bypassed a weapons screening checkpoint, entered the hospital and allegedly committed the crime.

It appears as if deputies were already chasing him and, after hearing a woman’s scream, found Carnalla near a nurse who had been stabbed several times.  He was arrested immediately. The weapon, a knife, was recovered at the scene.

Although she was listed in critical condition, a spokeswoman for the hospital said  the victim appeared to be improving.

Later that morning at the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Torrance, a man allegedly grabbed a nurse from behind and stabbed her in the ear with a pencil.  Thomas Robert Fredette, 38, was arrested in connection with that assault.  The victim in the second assault was treated and released.
