TEMPLE CITY, Calif. -- (KTLA) -- A woman was stabbed to death with her own samurai sword by an intruder in Temple City, and a 10-year-old boy witnessed the crime, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said Tuesday.
The incident occurred about noon in the 6000 block of Temple City Boulevard.
A man went into the home with a wrench and started beating the woman, described as being in her 40s, Lt. John Corina said.
“Then he picks up a samurai sword in the house and stabs her with it,” Corina said.
A man, also in his 40s, was with the victim when the incident occurred. He was also stabbed and was taken to a hospital in unknown condition, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Responding deputies began searching for the suspect, who was still in the neighborhood. The man eventually surrendered to authorities.
