Valencia man found guilty of attempted voluntary manslaughter


A Valencia man was found guilty today of two counts of attempted voluntary manslaughter and one count of injuring a girlfriend, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office told The Signal.

Shortly before 1:30 p.m. Wednesday jurors deliberating in the trial of Cameron Reed Hansen, 31, announced they had reached a verdict after three days of deliberation, DA spokesman Ricardo Santiago said.

“The jury also found that Hansen was armed with a knife and caused great bodily injury,” he said.

Hansen’s trial began Feb. 21 and wrapped up Friday with closing arguments.

The jury began deliberating Friday but only for about 10 minutes, resuming Monday morning in Pasadena Superior Court.

According to prosecutors, Hansen went to his ex-girlfriend’s home on March 3, 2015, where he allegedly bit and beat her.

When her mother and her roommate came to her aid, the defendant allegedly stabbed both women multiple times, prosecutors said during a court appearance in April 2015.

Burbank police responded to reports of an assault on the 700 block of Roselli Street on March 3 and found three female victims, two suffering from stab wounds and the third beaten, Burbank Officer Joshua Kendrick said in a news release issued at the time of Hansen’s arrest.

The suspect — later identified as Hansen — fled the scene just prior to the officers’ arrival, he said. He was arrested later the same day.

The three women, ages 67, 41 and 21, were taken to a Burbank-area hospital and listed in critical but stable condition.

Hansen remains in custody at the Pitchess Detention Center’s North County Correctional Facility, with bail set at $2.16 million.
