On Monday 10 July 2017 Officers from Platoon A responded to a complaint of a fight in progress near East End Ave. and S. Plum St. Upon arrival in the area of S. Ann St. and East End Ave., Off. Yoder located a 35 year old male that had a stab wound on his right arm, nose and behind his right ear. The male was transported to LGH for treatment.
After investigating the incident last night and this morning, Det. Sgt. Kurt Miller has garnered information that the following happened prior to Police arrival in the area. The victim and another male had been at the Prince of Subs bar on S. Prince St earlier that evening. There had been some type of altercation between the victim, his friend and another group of males.
Later in the night, the victim and his friend went to the area of S. Plum St., in the victim's vehicle, to find one of the males from the opposing group. When they arrived and confronted the male, a group of his friends arrived and attacked the males in the car. The victim believed that someone opened the passenger and punched him several times. It was only a moment later that he realized he had been stabbed on his right side.
The victim ran from the scene and said that he heard several gunshots fired in his direction. (Officers had located six spent shell casings in the area of S. Plum St. and E. Mifflin St.) The victim did not know where his friend of his vehicle were when Officer Yoder found him. Officers had located the victim's vehicle crashed into a parked car along the 400 blk. E.
