An LASD spokesperson confirmed to KTLA that the collision involving two squad cars occurred near East Beverly Boulevard and South Hillview Avenue around 12:55 a.m. Monday.

Woman dies after 'unprovoked' attack at Los Angeles Metro station in Studio City

A woman in her 40s or 50s has died following another violent incident involving public transportation in Los Angeles.

The latest incident occurred around 5 a.m. Monday morning. The victim was stabbed as she exited the Universal City B Line Station at 3901 Lankershim Blvd, close to the major tourist attraction, Universal Studios.

The attacker fled the scene, but a combination of surveillance cameras and witness descriptions about the man and his distinctive clothing helped Los Angeles Police Department officers locate and arrest the suspect a short time later near Ventura Boulevard and Vineland Avenue.

Authorities say it appears that the suspect and the victim did not know each other.

“This does appear to be completely unprovoked from what witnesses have told detectives,” LAPD Det. Meghan Aguilar to KTLA 5’s Rachel Menitoff. “There was no altercation prior to this violent attack.”

Train service was halted for several hours as officers investigated at the Studio City station. A bus bridge service was available to riders between the North Hollywood and Hollywood-Highland stations, L.A. Metro spokesperson Dave Sotero said.

Some Metro riders say they have an elevated sense of fear when using public transportation.

“I take Metro every day and it’s gotten worse and worse,” Studio City resident Jackinman told KTLA. “It used to be that it was downtown only, but it’s come all the way out to the valley.”

Metro released a statement about the incident.

“The Los Angeles Fire Department responded to the scene and the victim was transported to a local hospital where, unfortunately, she succumbed to her injuries. Metro extends its condolences to her family and friends,” the statement says.

Although there have been numerous deadly incidents in recent months aboard Metro, statistics show that passenger crime has dropped by roughly 10% compared to a year ago.

The LAPD hasn’t released any further details about the suspect.

Anyone with additional information on this crime is asked to call the LA Regional Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-222-TIPS or 800-222-8477.

Kid Cudi updates fans after breaking foot at Coachella: 'S–t got real'

Kid Cudi is recovering after breaking his foot in the middle of his set at Coachella over the weekend.

“S–t got real yesterday,” the “Day’n’Nite” rapper said in a video message to fans on X, formerly Twitter, on Monday morning.

“This is what happens when a 40-year-old man tries to prance around onstage like he’s 26, like he used to do back in the day,” he laughed while lying in bed.

Cudi, born Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi, got hurt after jumping off the stage during his show during Weekend 2 of the festival.

Video captured by fans shows Cudi taking a spill after he attempted to jump over a barrier to get into the crowd during his song “Memories.” He lands on his side and then is later seen carried off by two members of his security team.

The fall forced him to cut his show short.

“I learned a valuable lesson, no more prancing around, jumping off stages,” he continued in the post.

He assured fans that he’s okay, but a little sore.

“Yesterday was a lot of pain, but I’m doing better now.”

Cudi revealed that he broke “something” in his heel and is set to get a real cast later in the day as he had a temporary on during the video.

“This is a major setback,” he said after a deep sigh. “But I’m going to bounce back. Aight?”

He hopes to be healed before his Insano Engage the Rage World Tour starts in June.

Right now nothing has been canceled and he’s going to wait and see how things go.

“I don’t want to let you guys down,” he said.

The tour kicks off on June 28 in Austin, Texas, and makes its way to the Crypto.Com Arena in Los Angeles on Aug. 30.

Cudi ended his messages by telling his fans that he loves them and to “engage the rage” before blowing them all a goodbye kiss.

Family of father of 5 devastated after he's killed in Southern California hit-and-run crash

A Southern California family is searching for answers after a father of five was killed in a hit-and-run crash early Friday morning.

The victim — 44-year-old Anthony Molina — was walking home around 3:22 a.m. when he was struck by a vehicle on Marshall Boulevard near Elm Avenue in San Bernardino on April 19.

A security camera from the area picks up the audio of the crash but issues with visibility make it difficult to make out the vehicle.

Anthony’s family is heartbroken after the tragedy.

“I’m missing my son, look what you did to my son,” the victim’s mother, Sandra, said while fighting back tears to KTLA 5’s Carlos Saucedo. “No bringing him back anymore. I can’t believe this is being done to my son.”

Anthony’s death has left his family devastated, and his loss will also impact the community. The 44-year-old coached Little League in San Bernardino for more than 20 years. Anthony lived in his home for 28 years.

Neighbors in the area say speeding is all too common on that stretch of road, and are hopeful the city will add speedbumps to slow drivers down.

Authorities have not released any information about the suspect’s vehicle that was involved in the crash.

Anthony’s sister, Darling Vanessa Molina, is pleading for the driver to come forward.

“If you’re watching, turn yourself in,” she said. “My brother deserves to get justice.”
