Time: 4:32 pm


Location: 400 W. Jefferson Blvd


Victim:    Adult Male / Serious Condition




On April 25, 2019, at 4:32pm, the Fort Wayne Police Department was notified of a fight on the parking lot of a gas station located in the 400 block of W. Jefferson Blvd. Information was then received that an adult male had been stabbed, and had been taken to a local hospital by a witness. Hospital staff initially determined the male to be in critical condition, but later upgraded him to serious condition.


At this time, the only available information indicates two adult males got into a fight, during which one produced a knife and stabbed the other. As stated, the victim was taken to the hospital, and the other male fled the scene.


Officers and detectives were quickly able to establish the whereabouts of the other male, who is currently detained and being considered a person of interest. He is currently being interviewed at the police station.

Upon completion of this interview, detectives will consult with the Allen County Prosecutor’s Office on potential charges. If charges are filed, that information will be released at that time.


Crime Scene units are processing the scene as well, searching for and collecting evidence. The victim at the hospital will be interviewed as soon as possible as well.


Anyone with any information is asked to contact police.


There are no further details at this time.
