Fatal stabbing in Lawndale home

A North Phil­adelphia man was stabbed to death in­side a Lawndale home on Sunday morn­ing, but po­lice have re­leased few de­tails about the slay­ing.

Of­ficers went to the 6100 block of Has­brook Ave. at 5:39 a.m. in re­sponse to a 911 call re­port­ing “a per­son with a weapon.” Luionel Perez, 21, of the 2700 block of N. Sixth St. was in­side the res­id­ence suf­fer­ing from a stab wound of the neck. He was pro­nounced dead at the scene at 5:52 a.m.

Of­fi­cially, po­lice have named no sus­pects or de­clared a motive in the slay­ing. But CBS-3 re­por­ted that a wo­man called 911 to re­port the in­cid­ent, then left the scene be­fore cops ar­rived. The TV sta­tion cited an un­named po­lice source. ••
