According to the Culver City Police Department (CCPD), on September 18 at 9:06 p.m., officers received a radio call regarding a verbal argument between two men that resulted in a stabbing in the DoubleTree hotel lobby located at 6161 Centinela Avenue in Culver City.
“Personnel responded and began to treat the victim who was on lying on the lobby floor, bleeding profusely, and losing consciousness,” CCPD said in a press release.
The victim was transported to a local hospital where he was treated for multiple stab wounds and abrasions. The victim is in critical condition but is expected to survive, police said.
