Back on February 9, a resident in the 200 block of N. Griffith Park Dr. called police shortly after 2 a.m.   The resident reported that a woman who had been stabbed was at their door seeking help.  Police responded to the area and found the woman with numerous stab wounds.  She was treated at the scene by Burbank Fire Department paramedics, and transported by rescue ambulance to a local hospital, where she remains in critical condition.

Detectives from the Burbank Police Department were able to identify six suspects, five adults and one juvenile.  According to police, all six are gang members. The last of the suspects was arrested this past weekend.   The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Hardcore Gang Unit filed attempted murder charges against all of the suspects.

During the course of their investigation, Burbank Police, working with the Los Angeles Police Department, were able to connect the same suspects with a shooting that occurred earlier in the LAPD’s Rampart Division.
