SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) - An argument on Santa Monica's famous pier escalated into a stabbing, and five people have been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.
Police say two victims were stabbed several times each around 1:20 a.m. Saturday, following a confrontation with the group of five.
One victim was injured seriously enough to require immediate surgery. Police say both are expected to survive.
The five suspects were stopped as they tried to leave the landmark pier over the Pacific Ocean.
Bail was set at $1 million for four adult suspects. The fifth suspect is a minor; he was booked into juvenile hall.
