A California woman in her early 20’s was fatally attacked on Tuesday night in Hollywood after stopping to take a photograph of a cardboard sign being held up by a group of men. The men apparently became violent and stabbed her to death when she refused to pay them $1 to take their picture.

Three men are expected to be charged Friday in connection with the stabbing death of a woman next to the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The three men were arrested in connection with the death of 23-year-old Christine Darlene Calderon after police said the men attacked her Tuesday night on Hollywood Boulevard.
Charges are expected to be filed Friday with arraignment likely the same day, authorities said.
Authorities said Calderon was strolling down the Walk of Fame with a coworker after sunset when an amusing cardboard sign caught her eye. She pulled out her cellphone to snap a picture of men displaying signs asking for money with four-letter insults and a smiley face, they said.
Moments later, according to law enforcement sources, one of the men demanded that she pay $1 for the pictures.
When she refused, police say, two of the men allegedly pinned Calderon’s coworker against a wall, while the third jumped on top of Calderon, knocking her onto the pavement.
When she got up to run away, authorities said, blood was gushing from a stab wound in her midsection. She collapsed a few feet from the terrazzo Walk of Fame stars. She was pronounced dead at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center three hours later.
Such a senseless and sad way for this woman to lose her life. People really are losing their minds more and everyday.
