Ashkan Amirsoleymani, 35, was arrested on three charges of attempted murder in connection with the incident on Friday, according to the LA Police Department on Twitter.
He is being put in jail on a $3 million bail. On Saturday, it was unclear whether he had a counsel who could speak on his behalf. And according to Wasitonpost, the district attorney’s office did not respond to an email inquiring if charges had been filed.
Amirsoleymani entered Encino Hospital Medical Center in the San Fernando Valley soon before 4 p.m. Friday.
Authorities claimed Amirsoleymani stopped his car in the middle of a roadway and drove to the emergency department. There he begged for anxiety therapy before slashing the doctor and nurses.
Three people were rushed to a trauma hospital in critical condition, according to fire authorities. Police subsequently stated that one was in severe condition and had surgery.
According to KNBC-TV, two of the patients have been treated and released from Dignity Health Northridge Hospital Medical Center. According to the TV station, the third victim is still hospitalized in fair but stable health.
The first floor of the Encino hospital and several adjoining workplaces were evacuated during the attack, said police.
LAPD Deputy Chief Alan Hamilton stated there was no proof that the individual, subsequently identified as Amirsoleymani, knew the victims.
He waited in a hospital room for almost four hours as SWAT team members attempted unsuccessfully to communicate with him before being captured, according to police.
Elizabeth Nikels, a spokesman for Prime Healthcare, who operates the Encino hospital says no other patients were wounded and other patients were able to be treated.

He is the co-owner of CrossFit Rittenhouse gym. According to his interview on Two Brain Radio, he grew up playing football, basketball, and a variety of other sports. That carried over into his high school and collegiate football careers.
However, when he was going to the YMCA, playing hoops, and doing his bis and tris on Fridays he came across CrossFit. He found a gym that was close to his parent’s house at the time, went, and started working out, and fell in love with it, and kind of left everything else behind.
Eventually, he opened the gym in partnership with Greg.
And it was back in 2012, and after that, I moved out of my parents’ house, went to Hoboken, joined another gym, met John, and the rest is history.
