Man Arrested After 6 People Stabbed at House Party in Pasadena

A man was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after six people were stabbed at a Pasadena house party early Saturday morning, police said.

Police responded to a residence on the 3100 block of East California Boulevard around 3:10 a.m. after a fight broke out during a house party, according to Lt. Vasken Gourdikian of the Pasadena Police Department. About 100 to 150 people were in the home.

When officers arrived, they found six victims with stab wounds. According to police, a fight broke out after someone bumped into the suspect, identified as 21-year-old Aaron Te, and the San Gabriel resident pulled out a knife and began stabbing people around him.

Te was in front of the home when responding officers arrived and detained, Pasadena police said in a statement.

Police recovered Te's knife, which he had before he came to the party, Gourdikian said.

It was unclear if the man knew the victims or if he was an uninvited guest.

The victims were transported to local hospitals. All of the victims were described by police as Asian men in their early 20's. As of Saturday morning, one victim was in serious condition, two of the victims were in critical condition, and three others had moderate to severe injuries, but were expected to recover, police said.

"Te was arrested for attempted murder and booked at the Pasadena City Jail," Pasadena police said in statement. It was not known if Te had an attorney.

Anyone with information about the stabbing was asked to call 626-744-4620.
