Police: Stabbing and Robbery Last Night Near Holmes Run Trail

Police say two men were stabbed and robbed by two unknown suspects on Sunday night near the Holmes Run Trail.

The incident reportedly took place around 10 p.m. on the 5700 block of Sanger Avenue on a trail behind the William Ramsey Recreation Center.

“Two people were stabbed and robbed over personal items,” said police spokesman Courtney Ballantine. “They took themselves to the hospital and were treated for non-life threatening injuries.”

No suspect descriptions are available.

Ballantine said a helicopter and a police K-9 were brought in to search but the suspects had fled the scene. He added that the search was partly complicated by a significant delay between when the stabbing took place and when it was reported.
