    " Signed 'death warrants' left at scene of three homeless stabbings as police frantically search for serial killer
   
    A desperate manhunt is underway in Los Angeles for a serial killer suspect who stabbed three homeless people and left typed and signed 'death warrants' at the scene, according to police.
   
    The recent attacks occurred in Santa Monica, Hollywood and the city centre. Police have said the victims were a woman and two men in their 50s who survived the attacks.
   
    All three people were stabbed in the back while they slept and police have named a David Ben Keyes as a 'person of interest' in the case and have launched a city wide appeal for information to find him.
   
    The first incident occurred on July 4th when a 56-year-old homeless man was discovered bleeding with a large knife sticking out of his back near the intersection of 3rd and Main streets in Los Angeles.
   
    The victim managed to crawl 100 yards to get help despite the weapon still being lodged between his shoulder blades.
   
    The second attack came on July 17th when another man was knifed as he was sleeping on a Santa Monica bus bench near the Third Street Promenade and Santa Monica police Sgt. Richard Lewis said that a note was found on the victim similar to one found on the first man.
   
    And on Thursday night a 54-year-old homeless woman was stabbed in her back while she slept near to the intersection of La Brea and De Longpre avenues which is blocks away from Hollywood High School.
    She had a note lodged under her body by her attacker.
   
    The two homeless men and one woman in their 50s were attacked in Hollywood, Los Angeles city centre and Santa Monica while they were asleep
   
    The second victim of the stabbing, who was knifed in the back, is wheeled away by paramedics after surviving the attack
    Authorities in LA have said that they are looking for one suspect in the case, a man they have identified as David Ben Keyes, who they believe to be homeless and who has been missing for weeks from the Santa Barbara area.
   
    All the 'death warrants' have been signed with his name and each note was discovered either under the victim or stuffed inside their clothes.
   
    'I'm not allowed to discuss exactly what's in there, but it does say 'death warrant' on the note that's on each of these people's bodies,' said LAPD Cmdr. Andy Smith to KTLA.
    'It's certainly clear that he's mobile.
   
    'Our understanding is that he's down here from the Santa Barbara area.'
   
    According to Keyes' Facebook page, he lives in Santa Barbara, however police have had a fruitless search for a social security number, address of even drivers license for him.
    Some police sources have indicated that the name might be an alias and have identified a Courtney Anthony Robinson as the possible correct identity of Keyes.
   
    On different websites including social media, Keyes describes himself as 'a musician and a writer of original psalms, proverbs, love letters, poems and riddles for the Roman Catholic Church and Jewish Synagogues,' according to the LA Times.
   
    Also describing himself as the CEO/CFO of David Ben Keyes, the 'about' section of his profile contains the following description.
    'orthodox/Grand Inquisitor 17 Pope XVII Holy Roman Catholic Church & Empire - David Ben Keyes corporation $250 billion dollar Beverly Hills defence contract and Entertainment Company in Beverly Hills and Hollywood Studios in the private sector currently being funded.'
   
    David Ben Keyes is thought to be homeless himself and using the Los Angeles public transport system to get around the city
    In some of his Facebook profile pics Keyes is seen to be camping and in other photos, he is holding a large gun.
   
    All three victims are in their 50s and were stabbed in the back in the early morning hours as they slept, Smith said. The victims survived, though one remains hospitalised, police said.
   
    Police are warning homeless people to seek shelter at night and avoid sleeping alone in the streets.
   
    'Any homeless person sleeping anywhere outside is vulnerable tonight - more vulnerable than usual," Smith said.
    Homeless people on Skid Row in Los Angeles said they would try to band together to stay safe overnight.
   
    Los Angeles police have issued warnings to the homeless community in the city to seek shelter tonight as they continue their pursuit of David Ben Keyes
   
    'You just try to stick among ones that you can actually trust and all that so you can watch each other's backs,' Roland Roller, who sleeps on Skid Row, told NBC4-TV.
    The letters left with the victims were all signed 'David Ben Keyes,' who police have named as a person of interest in their investigation, Smith said.
   
    Smith emphasised that police are still unclear if the name on the death warrants is the name of the actual suspect, and police only want to question Keyes at this point.
   
    The second victim was stabbed on in the early morning of Tuesday 17 July while he slept on a bench near to a bus stop
   
    The attacks targeting the homeless are reminiscent of a series of stabbings in Orange County several months ago in which four people died. A suspect was arrested in those cases.
   
    Homicide Division Capt. Billy Hayes -whose detectives took over the case Thursday- said it was too soon to know if the crimes could be linked to the series of gory stabbing deaths of four homeless people in Orange County between Dec. 2011 and January.
   
    Itzcoatl Ocampo, a former Marine, was charged in those homeless murders, and also has been charged with killing the mother and brother of his friend. Prosecutors say they will seek the death penalty in the ongoing case against Ocampo."

    Courtney Anthony Robinson a été arrêté vendredi soir à Hollywood. La police a d'abord cru que son nom aurait pu être David Keyes Ben.
    C'était le nom utilisé pour signer chacun des "bons de souscription de la mort" trouvés sur les trois victimes.
   
    Courtney Anthony Robinson (: David Ben Keyes) est derrière les barreaux; Est-il l'homme responsable de trois tentatives de meurtres ?
   
   
   
   
    Itzcoatl Ocampo,24 ans, est en attente de son procès programméle 10 Septembre. En plus de ces quatre crimes, le jeune homme est également accusé du double homicide d’une mère et de son fils le 25 octobre à Yorba Linda, au sud-ouest de Los Angeles. Selon la police, Raquel Estrada, 53 ans, et son fils Juan Herrera, 34 ans, auraient respectivement reçu 30 et 60 coups de couteau. Son avocat, Randall Longwith, qui a été autorisé à aller voir son client en prison a déclaré au «Los Angeles Times» qu’il «passait ses journées à dormir, roulé en boule sous son lit sans pantalon ni chemise.» Selon lui, il ressemblerait «un chat apeuré». L'accusé risque une peine de prison à vie sans possibilité de libération conditionnelle, mais aussi une condamnation à mort.

    Sans-abris poignardés en Californie: un suspect a été arrêté
   
    .
    LOS ANGELES, États-Unis - La police de Los Angeles a arrêté un suspect relativement à trois agressions à l'arme blanche contre des sans-abris, survenues dans la région au cours des dernières semaines.
   
    Courtney Anthony Robinson, âgé de 38 ans, a appelé la centrale d'urgence vendredi, confiant être celui dont le visage apparaissait sur les dépliants distribués par les autorités à travers la ville, a indiqué samedi le commandant Andrew Smith. Des policiers ont retrouvé le suspect devant un restaurant de Hollywood, et lui ont passé les menottes aux poignets sans difficultés.
   
    Il a été accusé de tentative de meurtre et est détenu sous une caution de 500 000 $ US.
   
    Les policiers avaient décrit le suspect comme un possible itinérant de Santa Barbara, dont le nom serait aussi celui de David Ben Keyes, qui figurait au bas des notes laissées sur les trois lieux des agressions à l'arme blanche. Courtney Anthony Robinson a admis avoir lui-même signé les notes, qui portaient la mention «arrêt de mort», a raconté l'agent Smith.
   
    L'une des victimes est de Santa Monica, tandis que les deux autres sont de Los Angeles, et toutes ont été poignardées dans le dos alors qu'elles dormaient. Les trois sans-abris, âgés dans la cinquantaine, ont survécu.
   
    Le premier incident est survenu le 3 juin dans le centre-ville de Los Angeles, le second a eu lieu mardi à Santa Monica tandis que le plus récent s'est produit jeudi, lorsqu'une femme a été poignardée à Hollywood.
   
    Le commandant Smith a indiqué que les enquêteurs soupçonnaient Courtney Anthony Robinson d'être lié à d'autres cas d'itinérants poignardés à Santa Barbara, des affaires qui n'avaient pas encore été résolues.
   
    Les détectives ont décrit le suspect comme une personne lucide et capable d'avoir une conversation, mais souffrant possiblement de troubles mentaux, selon ce qu'a rapporté le commandant Smith.
   
    Vendredi, les policiers et des groupes de défense des plus démunis avaient pressé les sans-abris à quitter la rue pour dormir dans les refuges, alors que les nouvelles d'une affaire d'agresseur en série commençaient à se propager.
