Two people stabbed in separate incidents, police report

Two people were transported Monday afternoon to University Medical Center as a result of unrelated stabbings, Metro Police reported.

The first occurred at 98 S. Martin Luther King Blvd., Metro spokesman Bill Cassell said. Police were called around 1:30 p.m. to a stabbing in what appeared to be a domestic dispute, Cassell said. A man was transported to UMC with injuries that were not thought to be life-threatening. No arrests have been made, but police have detained a woman, Cassell said.

The second stabbing happened at 2:40 p.m. in the area of 33 W. Owens Ave. Cassell said two homeless people were fighting, and one was transported to UMC with injuries that were not thought to be life-threatening.

  1. Continued violence in North Vegas and Vegas proper. Sad.

  2. @Wolfdog, who would you identify these 'people' as?

    I have my own theory that crime in the valley has a lot to do with destitution and hopelessness too. So how do we target those groups most effected and make a change?
