A $50,000 reward was offered Friday for information that could lead an arrest in the recent slaying of a restaurant worker, who was stabbed and left to die on a Venice street.


Guillermo Carmona-Perez died Monday after he was found with a stab wound on a Venice street.

Shortly after midnight on Monday, 24-year-old Guillermo Carmona-Perez was found lying near the corner of Washington Boulevard and Pacific Avenue with a stab wound.

Authorities transported the victim to a local hospital, where he later died from the injuries.

There was no witness to the stabbing, according to police.

“Guillermo’s murder is a disturbing and horrific crime and a tragedy for his family, friends and the entire Venice community,” said City Councilmember Mike Bonin in a statement Friday.

“Our neighborhoods will be safer once the person or people responsible for this crime are off the streets,” Bonin said.

Bonin’s Facebook page included a post about the reward with a photo of Carmona-Perez under the heading “Justice for Guillermo.”

Anyone with information about the incident was asked to contact the Los Angeles Police Department at 310-382-9470.
