Police Search for Suspect in Overnight Stabbing
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – A 27-year-old Sioux Falls man is recovering from surgery after being stabbed overnight.
Police say the victim ran into the Get-‘N-Go on Minnesota Avenue just before 3 a.m. Monday, claiming he had been shot. Police determined the man had been stabbed in the lower back and was transported to the hospital.
Police say they followed a “blood trail” to where the incident began on 10th Street and Spring Avenue. Police will be interviewing the victim once he is out of surgery.
Sioux Falls Police tells KDLT News they don’t have much to go on in regard to the search for a stabbing suspect early Monday morning. The victim had been receiving care and as of 5:00 a.m., they hadn’t had a chance yet to talk with him.
The victim, police tell KDLT News, walked on his own into the Get-‘N-Go convenience store at the corner of 600 S. Minnesota early Monday morning with a stab wound to the back. Just before 3 a.m., a clerk called 911 to report the victim had come in seeking medical assistance. Police report that the incident did not happen on-site, rather it was in a nearby neighborhood. More information should be available later Monday morning at police briefing.
