A story for every victim

Roland Wayne Moore, 32

Roland Wayne Moore, a 32-year-old black man, was fatally stabbed Saturday, Nov. 1, in the 2900 block of West Sixth Street in Westlake, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.

About 10:15 p.m., Moore was found in the area with stab wounds.

He was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead at 11:24 p.m., said Ed Winter, assistant chief of investigations for the coroner’s office.

Investigators believe that Moore was stabbed and beaten with a knife and a stick in a fight with two other people, said LAPD Sgt. Raul Pedroza.  It remains unclear why the fight began.

Two suspects in the assault – Arthur James Deblanc, a 41-year-old black man, and Sarah Wilson, a 25-year-old white woman – were found at Lafayette Park and arrested on suspicion of murder, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call West Bureau Homicide at (213) 382-9470. Those who wish to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
