Gary Police are investigating a stabbing incident Monday afternoon in the 54 hundred block of West 25th Avenue. Lt. Del Stout says a 21 year old employee of the Cricket store sustained deep cuts on his face, cheeks, both legs, and to his left arm, after a suspect, wearing a blue hat with a dark hood pulled over it, pulled a knife, and demanded “everything.” Lt. Stout says the incident occurred around 2:30pm Monday, and the suspect, who had acted like he was going to buy a phone prior to the stabbing, fled the scene on foot. Police say they are checking to see if this incident is related to a similar incident on April 18th at an adult bookstore, also located in the 54 hundred block of West 25th Avenue. Anyone with information is ask to contact the Gary Police Department.
