One person has been charged and police are continuing their investigation into an incident on Saturday night (September 1st) in which two persons were taken to hospital with apparent stab wounds.
Police were dispatched at approximately 9:15 p.m. on Saturday, September 1, 2018, to a residence in the 700 block of Garnet Street, for a report of two injured persons at that location. Police and EMS arrived and located a 36 year-old male victim and a 52 year-old female victim, both of whom had sustained injuries consistent with an assault with a bladed weapon. Both were taken to hospital by EMS, with injuries described as serious. Investigation into this incident indicates an argument turned into an altercation between persons visiting the residence. The female victim is believed to have intervened in the struggle, which occurred in the alley behind the house. The suspect and two other individuals left the scene before police arrived, but the male suspect was later located and charged. A knife, believed to have been used in the assault, was found at the scene. Investigation into this matter is ongoing.
