Los Angeles police have arrested a 25-year-old Van Nuys man in the stabbing death of an Encino man in Woodley Park last week. The man, John Kenneth Rabe, was being held on suspicion of stabbing Robert R. Gloisten, 29, on Oct. 30.
"It was a 3-year-old grudge, a retaliation stabbing" for a drug deal in which Rabe thought Gloisten "ripped him off," Detective Dan Riehl said.
Rabe was arrested Thursday morning near Venice Beach, Riehl said. Rabe is being held in Van Nuys Jail without bail.
