A man stabbed in a Walnut park was hospitalized Saturday with a severe arm injury.

The stabbing was reported around 11:25 p.m. Friday at Suzanne Park, in the 600 block of Suzanne Road, sheriff's Sgt. Rob Blunt of the Walnut Station said.

The victim, who was stabbed in his left arm, was airlifted to a hospital
for treatment, but no condition report was available, Blunt said, describing the
man's wound as "pretty severe.''

It was unclear if the stabbing was gang-related. No suspect information was available, he said.

Investigators had trouble communicating with the victim, who speaks Mandarin Chinese, Blunt said.

I can remember when it was considered respectful to learn the language of the country you live in. Now we have to print everything in 150 different languages so they don't have to learn.

Great job Walnut Sheriff Station [end of sarcasm]. Instead of having 2 cops at every Council meeting, do you think they can get out and patrol the parks? Are you guys afraid of the dark? I see a patrol car parked frequently at La Petite at night doing God knows what -can they park at Suzanne and watch it? Instead of writing every radar ticket they can to pay for bloated pensions they don't deserve, can they do something to keep Walnut from turning into Rowland Heights???

Asians need to avail themselves of their second ammendment rights and own handguns. I will bet very few Asians own handguns. This makes them easy targets. Not sure that would have helped in this case, but we need to push for concealed carry in Calif. You will not be attacked if the criminal thinks you are carrying. Criminals KNOW Asians are not carrying.

I don't think concealed-carry is the issue here- I think it's the Walnut City Council and the Sheriff who have misplaced priorities- where the hell are they on this??? Changes that can be made: 1) send cops to patrol parks not City Council meetings 2) lower patrols for the multi-million dollar homes and patrol the parks- the only time I see a sheriff car on my street is when they pass by my house to the "McMansions" up the street- who ALL HAVE private security. 3) why do I see Sheriff cars parked at Arco AM/PM on Brea Cyn frequently- park AT THE PARKS instead 4) Set up a low-cost wireless surveillance for deterrence? Pay for it by cancelling all the expensive overtime costs for parades.

Actually, I have had very positive experiences with the Sheriff dept., individually. I just got a warning (no ticket) from them about 2 weeks ago. I've never got a radar ticket from them, it's just something I have observed. I think this is a priority problem with the Council- let's have less cops at Council meetings and more patrols for us peasants.

Vito, there is absolutely no research that indicates that allowing concealed weapons reduces crime. This information might be of value while doing your research: The rate of death from firearms in the United States is eight times higher than that in its economic counterparts in other parts of the world. The overall firearm-related death rate among U.S. children younger than 15 years of age is nearly 12 times higher than among children in 25 other industrialized countries combined.

I am just frustrated that cops prevent very little crime. They just carry away the body of the victim and punish the bad guy AFTER the crime is committed. I would like half a chance to protect myself. The second amendment allows US citizens to defend themselves. Like it or not, that is the law. In fact, concealed carry was just allowed in Illinois. http://www.latimes.com/news/nation/nationnow/la-na-nn-illinois-ban-concealed-weapons-struck-down-20121211,0,5217981.story People have a right to self defense.
