A 37-year-old woman was allegedly stabbed to death by her boyfriend June 3. Los Angeles Police Department officers found Deborah Alvarado of South Los Angeles lying in the roadway in the 100 block of Mountain View Avenue near Beverly Boulevard around 8:30 p.m. Thursday after they received a call about a man harassing a woman.
Los Angeles City paramedics responded to the scene and transported the victim to USC Medical Center where she was treated for multiple stab wounds but was later pronounced dead.
At the scene, officers arrested Alvarado's 26-year-old boyfriend Simon Vega. The couple had been dating for about one-year. Police also recovered a “bladed instrument,” which they believe was used to kill Alvarado.
Anyone with information about the fatal stabbing should contact LAPD Rampart Division detectives at (213) 484-3641.
