VIDEO: 2 Off-Duty NYPD Officers Stop CA Stabbing Suspect, Help Victim

Two off-duty NYPD officers detained the attacker and helped the victim when a Russian tourist who was with his family was stabbed at the popular Hollywood & Highland center in Los Angeles on Wednesday afternoon, Los Angeles police said.

"He got into some sort of an altercation involving a possible transient person, who produced a knife and was able to cause some stab wounds to the Russian victim," LAPD Capt. Pete Carcone said.

The weapon, which appeared to be an 8-inch kitchen-type knife, was left at the crime scene, reports KTLA.

On scene, police said two off-duty New York Police Department officers had detained the suspect. The men were in town on business and dining nearby when the stabbing occurred.

The victim was taken to a hospital in stable condition, according to LAPD.

Police later identified the alleged assailant as 54-year-old Donald Offerman. He was arrested and booked for suspicion of attempted murder and was being held on $500,000 bail.
