Suspect Arrested in Stabbing Deaths of 2 Silver Lake Men

February 26, 1987

A 23-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the stabbing deaths of two Silver Lake residents, Los Angeles police said.

Adrian Wycoff of Los Angeles was booked Tuesday on suspicion of murder, Los Angeles Police Detective Jim Bright said. Wycoff is a suspect in the slayings of Alfonso Flowers, 32, and John Petersen, 54, who shared an apartment on the 800 block of Maltman Avenue, according to Bright.

The victims met a third man last Thursday evening and took him home, investigators said.

Flowers' car was stolen, but it was recovered in Lomita earlier this week, Bright said.

Wycoff was arrested when he walked into the Rampart police station Tuesday to talk with detectives about another criminal matter, Bright said. He said police connected Wycoff to the car and to the location.

Wycoff is being held at Parker Center without bail.
