Knife assault in East Precinct

On November 22 at 3:30 A.M. officers initially responded to a disturbance in the hallway of an apartment complex in the 1600 block of 13 Avenue. As officers were arriving they were getting a second call of a stabbing at the same location. Officers arrived on scene and contacted the male victim, who had cuts to his left thigh and lower back. The victim was apparently at a party in one of the apartments and got into a verbal altercation with another man. Both men walked outside in front of the building while arguing and the suspect reached out with a sharp object, slashing the victim in the thigh and back. The suspect then fled the scene. Officers conducted an area check for the suspect but were unable to locate him. The victim was treated by SFD at the scene and transported to an area hospital for further treatment of his non-life-threatening injuries. The suspect remains at large.
