LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police say a man in his 30s was slashed with a knife and pepper-sprayed by three assailants who barged into his home.
City News Service reports the attack happened shortly before midnight Thursday when the man opened his front door after hearing a noise outside.
Sgt. Rick Colombia says the three attackers charged in and attacked. Colombia says one man cut him on the face, back and arm with a knife, while another pepper sprayed him.
The three then fled the home in El Sereno. The officer didn't immediately know if they got away with any property.
The victim was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.
