A man armed with a sword allegedly stabbed a woman and her dog in Los Angeles

A 23-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after he allegedly stabbed a woman and her dog Tuesday night with what appeared to be a sword in the Mid-Wilshire neighborhood of Los Angeles.

The attack on the 43-year-old woman and her pet appears to be random, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. She was taken to a local hospital.

KTLA-TV Channel 5 reported that witnesses saw the suspect fatally stabbing the woman’s dog. The LAPD had no information on the dog’s condition.

Police received multiple calls about someone attacking someone with a deadly weapon in the 1200 block of South Victoria Avenue shortly before midnight, LAPD spokeswoman Lizeth Lomeli said. Police arrived at the scene and were able to take the suspect into custody.

The suspect has been identified as Eric Herrera, police said. His bail was set at $1 million, according to prison records.
