Report of stabbing in the city ends with one person in custody.
City Police have brought one suspect in for questioning after chasing him around the Swan and Ellicott Street neighborhood following report of a possible stabbing in the area.
Police reported shortly before midnight last night that an officer was in pursuit of a bald, black male, in a blue jacket while an individual threatened to kill somebody.
A few minutes later an ambulance was requested to the area for a subject who sustained stab wounds however they were never treated as the apparent stabbing victim had left the scene with another individual while police were chasing the alleged perpetrator.
The suspect briefly evaded police but ended up returning to the basement of the residence where the alleged stabbing took place.
Shortly after midnight he was then taken into custody as he was spotted trying to escape out of a basement window.
He has yet to be charged because the alleged victim was not available to be interviewed and was instead taken back to the station for questioning.
Investigation into incident continues.
