LOS ANGELES (AP) - Police have identified two men stabbed to death last week at a private recreational club in Los Angeles’ Chinatown neighborhood.

Los Angeles Police Department Deputy Chief Justin Eisenberg identified the men as Tony Young and Kim Yun at a news conference Monday.

They were attacked Thursday at the Hop Sing Tong Benevolent Association.

Police said 37-year-old Vinh Quok Dao, a former member of the private club, had approached Young and demanded $400.

Homicide Det. Doug Pierce said Yun, the club’s president, intervened and Dao stabbed him with a 6-inch knife. He says Dao then stabbed Young several times.

Both men, who were in their 60s, died at the scene.

Dao was arrested Friday. It’s unclear if he has an attorney who could comment on the allegations.
