COVINA - A reported stabbing victim was hospitalized after ending up at a Jack In the Box late Monday night.
The man wandered into Jack In the Box, 912 N. Azusa Ave., some time after 10:30 p.m. January 8. The man seemed unaffected by the fact that he was stabbed and bleeding, according to a Jack In the Box employee.
“He walked in silently like nothing was wrong with him. He asked for a water cup and I said ‘do you need medical attention?’ He didn't respond. He continued to fill up his water cup,” according to Jack In the Box employee Ariel Arencibia. “I thought it was a joke so I went to the back and got on the line immediately with Covina [Police].
The man then left and walked to McDonald’s.
Officers found the bleeding man at Azusa Avenue and Cypress Street. He told them he had been stabbed, according to Sgt. Mike Colburn of the Covina Police Department.
Colburn did not have any further information.
Firefighters were summoned by police. The man was transported to an area trauma center, according to Dispatch Supervisor Michael Pittman of the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
