A search was underway Monday in Venice for the person who stabbed a restaurant worker and left him to die, authorities said.
Guillermo Perez, 24, was found suffering from a stab wound in the middle of the intersection at Pacific Avenue and Washington Boulevard around 12:30 a.m., according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
Paramedics transported Perez to UCLA Medical Center in Westwood, where he died a short time later.
The intersection was blocked off for several hours as police searched for clues.
There were no witnesses to the stabbing, police said.
The LAPD West Bureau Homicide Division urged anyone with information to contact detectives at (213)382-9470.
