FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – A woman was seriously hurt after being stabbed multiple times outside a bar early Tuesday morning.
Police were initially called to Clinton Street and McKinnie Avenue shortly after 3 a.m. for an unknown problem following a 911 call. When police arrived they found an injured woman in the parking lot of Fosters Sports Pub.
According to the police report, the woman was found with 10 stab wounds, most were lacerations and only one appeared to be a deep penetration. Paramedics took her to the hospital in serious condition. Her name has not been released.
A woman who was with the victim that night told police they were inside the bar drinking and left without any problems. The two got into a car and the victim started to back out but stopped when they saw another girl walking behind them. The girl yelled at the victim, accusing her of trying to hit her. The witness told police that the girl came up to the car and started punching the victim. At the same time, someone else went up to the passenger side and started hitting the other woman, the witness who spoke to police. The witness said a man then jumped on her, hitting her and kicking her in the head.
According to the police report, the witness told police she covered her head and was okay. There was no mention in the report of the witness going to a hospital.
The witness told police she heard someone say that the driver had been cut. The two went across the street to the gas station, called 911 and were back in the bar by the time police arrived.
Police said it’s unclear what was used in the stabbing or why the woman was stabbed. Broken bottles and at least one blood spot could be seen in the parking lot close to where the stabbing occurred. Blood from the victim covered the inside of a vehicle in the parking lot.
The suspects were gone by the time police arrived and the descriptions of them were not very good, according to the police report.
The incident is under investigation.
