Sus­pect held in stab­bing of 3

Los Angeles Times - - OBITUARIES - — As­so­ci­ated Press

Three Sacra­mento mu­si­cians were se­ri­ously in­jured af­ter be­ing stabbed in an al­leged ho­mo­pho­bic at­tack in midtown, the cen­ter of the city’s art and mu­sic scene.

Slaves gui­tarist Alex Ly­man suf­fered a 4-inch stab on his side, lead singer Balke Abbey was stabbed in the arm and re­quired surgery; and We­ston Rich­mond, another gui­tarist, had mi­nor cuts and broke his hand in the at­tack.

In so­cial media posts, the mu­si­cians said their at­tacker re­ferred to them with ho­mo­pho­bic slurs be­cause they had on skinny jeans.

Ti­mothy Brownell was booked on charges of as­sault with a deadly weapon. He was re­leased on bail on Mon­day. De­spite the mu­si­cians’ state­ments, po­lice say they are not in­ves­ti­gat­ing the in­ci­dent as a hate crime.
