A Croft House furniture store employee was stabbed to death in the Hancock Park area of Los Angeles on January 13.

The victim has been identified as Brianna Kupfer, according to various local media reports. The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) say that she was alone in the store when the suspect attacked her. A customer later found Kupfer and called 911.

Video footage shows that the suspect is a male wearing a white N95 mask and a black hoodie and jeans and was last seen walking out of the back alley of the store. It is not yet known what the motivation was for the attack or if the suspect and Kupfer knew each other. 

During a January 13 segment, CBS Los Angeles reporter Rick Montanez said that he talked to various people in the neighborhood who expressed outrage over the stabbing and “shared their frustrations over the crime but did not want to be interviewed.”

According to Capitol Weekly, murders in Los Angeles increased by 16% over the past year.
