Rudy Barrera, 23
Rudy Barrera, a 24-year-old Latino, was fatally stabbed Thursday, Sept. 15, in the 900 block of North Hoover Street in East Hollywood, according to Los Angeles County coroner's records.
Shortly before 8 p.m., Barrera got into an argument with his girlfriend's father in the living area of the man's apartment, said Los Angeles Police Det. Ray Martinez.
The argument turned physical, and another of the man's daughters intervened and stabbed Barrera, Martinez said.
Barrera was taken to a hospital where he later died.
Police said the argument was a disagreement over Barrera's relationship with his girlfriend.
Police believe the 22-year-old woman who stabbed Barrera was acting in defense of her father and refused to release her name. The case has been presented to the Los Angeles County district attorney's office for consideration.
