stomach at about 12:30 a.m. Sunday at a residence in the 200 block of
West Valencia Avenue, Burbank Police Sgt. Jay Jette said.
No one has been arrested, Jette said, adding that investigators
don't believe the incident was gang-related.
"Apparently, some uninvited guests tried to interrupt the party,"
he said. "A verbal confrontation ensued, and it escalated into a fist
fight, which led to the two men being stabbed."
Padilla was taken to County-USC Medical Center, and has improved
from critical condition, police said. Hospital representatives did
not return calls late Tuesday.
West was taken by a friend to Providence St. Joseph Medical Center
following the melee, police said. But Providence spokesman Dan Boyle
said the hospital had no record of West being treated there.
The investigation is ongoing, and anyone with information is asked
to call Det. Darin Ryburn at 238-3246.
