Santa Clarita Man Pleads Not Guilty In Burbank Stabbing -- August 21, 2015

A Santa Clarita man, who was arrested in Burbank after allegedly stabbing another man, pleaded not guilty in the case, officials said Friday.

Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office officials charged Ryan Davis, 35, of Santa Clarita, one count of assault with a deadly weapon, said Sarah Ardalani, spokeswoman for the DA’s office.

Around 1:15 a.m. Monday, BPD officers responded to the 600 block of Cambridge Drive in Burbank, regarding an assault taking place, said Sergeant Claudio Losacco, public information officer for the BPD, in an email.

Two men who had known each other for several years got into a fight, Losacco said.

Davis allegedly stabbed the victim, who is a 39-year-old male, in the upper torso, Losacco said. The victim denied medical treatment and transportation to the hospital because the injuries were not severe.

Davis was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon and booked into the Burbank City Jail on a $35,000 bond, Losacco said. The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office filed one count of 245(a)(1) PC, Assault with a Deadly Weapon, against Davis.

Davis is expected to appear in court on September 3 for a preliminary hearing setting.
