Culver City Police: Mall Stabbings Were Random

Police provide more details about random stabbings at Westfield Culver City

By Sam Catanzaro

Culver City police have confirmed that a series of stabbings at a mall in Culver City were random in nature.

According to the Culver City Police Department (CCPD), a man who stabbed two victims at Westfield Culver City mall recently chose his targets at random. According to the CCPD, both victims have recovered.

Culver City police say that on December 29, 2019, CCPD officers were flagged down outside of Five Guys Restaurant at the Westfield Culver City mall, located at 6000 Sepulveda Blvd, regarding a stabbing that had just occurred.

“Officers made contact with the victim who sustained a stab wound to his right hand. According to witnesses, the suspect left the scene prior to the officers’ being flagged down,” CCPD said in a press release.

The case was forwarded to the CCPD Detective Bureau who began an investigation.
 
Days later on January 2, 2020, CCPD officers responded to Kaiser Hospital to meet with the victim of another stabbing that had occurred earlier in the day at JCPenney within the same Culver City mall. Officers met with the victim who said he was stabbed in the right arm by an unknown male suspect while entering the JCPenney store.
 
“Surveillance footage recovered from the JCPenney incident, revealed the same suspect who had committed the assault days prior at Five Guys had also committed the assault at JCPenney,” CCPD said.
 
Through an investigation, detectives identified the suspect as Joshua Ebow, a Los Angeles resident. On January 3, 2020, CCPD Detectives arrested Ebow in the city of El Segundo.

Ebow was booked for two counts assault with a deadly weapon after providing CCPD Detectives with a full confession to both stabbings. Formal charges were filed with the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
