Man Arrested for Allegedly Stabbing Officer During Possible Mental Health Crisis

LOS ANGELES — On Sunday, November 6, around 7:00 p.m, officers from LAPD were dispatched to the area of the 7200 block of South Hobart Boulevard, regarding a family dispute involving a man reportedly suffering a mental health crisis.

Responding officers spoke to the man’s mother and learned that the man was still nearby.

Officers located the man behind a food truck. He then allegedly rushed towards a female officer and attempted to stab her in the neck and face. The officer raised her arms in defense, resulting in the officer suffering a stab wound in her left arm, police said.

The force of the stabbing attempt resulted in the officer on the ground with the now suspect on top of her. This led officers to make the decision to use force.

The suspect then fled on foot, which resulted in a foot pursuit. Officers called for backup and more help. This ended in a second reported use of force, with the suspect safe and unharmed in custody.

The officer that was hurt is reportedly in stable condition.

The suspect, identified as 22-year-old Arlandus Triplett, was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.
