One person was arrested for a stabbing incident on a bike path at the Perry's in Ocean Park, Santa Monica on Thursday night, Nov. 17.

On November 17, 2022, at about 9:40 PM, Santa Monica Police Department (SMPD) Officers were dispatched to investigate a stabbing by the public restrooms in the 2100 block of Ocean Front Walk (OFW). Subsequent calls were then received of a male with a knife being detained by a citizen in the 2600 block of OFW.

SMPD Officers arrived and encountered the suspect, identified as Jamal K. Lampitt a 26-year-old homeless male, being held down by a citizen. Lampitt was immediately taken into custody by officers without further incident and the involved knife was recovered. The stabbing victim was located in the 2600 block of OFW with multiple stab wounds. SMFD personnel responded and transported the victim to a local hospital.

Officers learned Lampitt approached the victim, produced a knife, and tried to rob him. The victim refused before Lampitt stabbed him and ran off. Sometime after, Lampitt encountered a male on a bicycle in Beach Parking Lot 5 South (2700 Barnard) and stabbed him multiple times for no apparent reason. The second victim was transported to a local hospital where both victims are recovering with non-life-threatening injuries.

Lampitt was transported to the SMPD Jail where he was booked for Attempted Robbery and Attempted Murder.

Anyone with any additional information pertaining to this incident is strongly encouraged to contact Detective Pollnow at 310-458-8455 or the Watch Commander (24 hours) at 310-458-8426.
