Burbank Police arrested a 23-year-old resident who allegedly stabbed his cousin in the neck Tuesday in the doorway of his apartment, authorities said.

Eddy Paez, of Burbank, stood in the doorway of his cousin’s apartment in the 200 block of East Verdugo Avenue and beckoned him out, police said.

The 21-year-old victim, who later told police he “had no idea” what might have provoked Paez, stepped outside, and was stabbed with a large knife.  The victim fought back and was able to run away, Police Sgt. Robert Quesada said.

Officers spotted Paez at about 10 p.m. in the area of Victory Boulevard and Verdugo Avenue. They chased him through the backyards of neighborhood residences before finding him hiding in the bushes, Quesada said.
