A man who led authorities on a pursuit from the San Fernando Valley to Glendale Sunday after allegedly stabbing four people in Panorama City is in custody after an hourslong standoff at a construction site in Glendale, officials said.
The stabbing occurred just after 1 p.m. in the 8800 block of Tobias Avenue Sunday afternoon, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
Two women and two children were stabbed in the incident. Preliminary reports indicated one of the victims is a 3-month-old baby wounded in the leg during the incident. The women are in critical condition and the children are expected to fully recover.
The suspect apparently went to his ex-girlfriend's home when the "disturbance" occurred and family members were stabbed. One of the victims was undergoing surgery.
Police spotted the man and tried to pull him over, but he led officers on a pursuit that began in the LAPD's Foothill Division and went through parts of Glendale, police said.
The driver lost control of the vehicle, crashed and the vehicle overturned, police said. The man ran away and eventually climbed onto the roof of a home that is under construction in the 3300 block of Chevy Chase Drive, staying there for hours.
The man's brother-in-law was at the scene in Glendale and told KTLA he and his family were "shocked" to hear what happened. He identified the suspect as George Gomez, but police have not formally identified him. The suspect is believed to be in his 20s.
Crisis negotiators and SWAT were at the scene, and the man's mother apparently helped negotiators talk him down. He was taken into custody and is expected to be charged with attempted murder, LAPD Lt. Chris Ramirez said.
