Officers called to a residence in the 1000 block of North Mentor Avenue at about 2:16 p.m. Wednesday in response to an “assault with a deadly weapon” call found an unresponsive man suffering from multiple stab wounds inside a residence, Pasadena police said.

Pasadena Fire Department paramedics attempted life-saving medical aid but the victim succumbed to his wounds. The man was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Police said the victim was 82-year-old Glenn Cavin, a Pasadena resident.

Detectives from the Pasadena Police Department’s Robbery / Homicide Unit responded to the crime scene and worked into the night.

The initial investigation led authorities to track a suspect to the Target store in the 3100 block of East Colorado Boulevard, according to Pasadena police.

Officers evacuated the Target, and were able to take the suspect into custody shortly after 3 p.m., according police and media sources.

Police did not release the suspect’s identity.

A police statement Wednesday night said two additional suspects are still outstanding and actively being sought. An official said Thursday morning the pair remain at large.

A motive for the stabbing has not been announced by authorities.
