REDONDO BEACH (CBSLA.com) — Authorities Sunday continued to investigate the stabbings of two teenagers at a Redondo Beach mall.

Redondo Beach police report that the victims, both 13 and from the South Bay, have undergone surgery as of Sunday morning.

The attack on the third level of the South Bay Galleria Mall occurred just before 7:30 p.m. Saturday in front of the AMC Theatres.

“Both victims were unconscious. They were on the third level of the South Bay Galleria Mall in front of the theaters,” Redondo Beach police Sgt. Mike Strosnider told KNX 1070’s Ed Mertz.

Mertz reports that both victims suffered stab wounds to the chest. They remain hospitalized in stable condition in an intensive care unit of a local hospital.

Meantime, investigators report that they are reviewing surveillance video to try and identify the suspect who was described by police as a Black male between 40-50 years of age.

According to police, the suspect is tall with a medium build and was last seen wearing a fatigue-type jacket, blue jeans, a black T-shirt and a dark-colored beanie. He had a possibly graying beard and mustache, authorities said.

“At this time, investigators are reviewing mall surveillance for possible video for identification of the person responsible for this incident,” Strosnider said.

No arrests have been made. A motive for the stabbings was not known.

Anyone with more information about the incident is asked to call the Redondo Beach Police Department tipline at (310) 937-6685

Of course its semi-automatic. The knife doesn’t just continuously restab, but it is also ready to restab immediately after each stab without manual intervention in between.

Switchblade knives and similar quick opening knives are widely illegal now. Samurai swords can be owned but not carried in public. Whatever you do to protect yourself, there’s likely a law against it passed by caring liberals.

What races were they and why would it matter?

This sounds to me like another loony attacking innocents, regardless of race, color or creed.

Pray for the victims...and lock up the loonies.

Because there is an epidemic of black on white crime and the media is not reporting it.

Suspect was 40-50. At the time the event occurred I was inside the theater watching “Hobbit” with my daughter.

Just guessing the victims were white - if it was the other way around we might be able to argue to let 13 year olds (with certain specific traits) conceal carry...

The article is on the website for CBS Los Angeles. Looks mainstream enough, to me.

“Yessss, but was the race of WHO was stabbed even mentioned.....?”

Nottttt that I see yet. Do you personally know anything about Redondo Beach, or the area?

Finding the perp is the highest priority.

Later the race of the victims will in my opinion be made public.

Somebody who would behave in the manner of the perp seems mentally ill.

Did you demand a racial breakdown for Tucson, Aurora and SandyHook?

Does giving the race of the perp and victim in every crime lead to proof of a NEW theory you wish to make?

We already know blacks commit violent crime far more frequently. I believe seven time more, to be specific.

It is well documented and publicized.

That's because the story is local. Look and see if the national media picks up and obsesses on it. Also, notice in these stories not only what is reported but what is left out. That is how the MSM filters the news to fit their agenda.

ups driver, I don’t think you need to explain the painfully obvious.

If I posted “I’m thinking for my honeymoon the wife and I want to swim with great white sharks dressed in seal outfits, what do you guys think?”, would a serious response be needed?

Was it painfully obvious? I don’t think so. What is obvious to some is oblivious to others.

In this case, the fact that a CBS local affiliate reported the story may lead some to believe that it is reported on CBS nationwide. Also, most people don’t pick up on the subtleties of bias reporting.

Suit yourself, as far as what you think of my posts, my name.

The post adequately replied to the question.

I won’t let you get my goat.

Thank you. I notice however, that the alphabet media are notably absent. Some may know to go elsewhere to find what is regularly omitted by the MSM, but many people don’t. It is also hard to find statistics broken down by a responsible site/author as opposed to some racist nutbag. Thanks again for the info.

You noticed that Hispanic lady in New York that pushed an Indian Hindu to his death on the subway track? She said she hated muslims and Hindus.

Greater Lost Angeles is extremely multicultural and multiracial; the more so with each passing decade.

So it wouldn’t surprise me if a crazy black man might stab asians, hispanics, fellow blacks.

However if it did turn out to be whites that wouldn’t surprise me either, particularly since Redondo Beach is about 75% white.

Seeing as how the ‘suspect’ is a 40-50 yo Black Male, and they mention it happening in front of the theater complex, how racist would it be to ask if he was exiting a certain movie?

Also, understand they found a high capacity knife sharpener at the scene???
