K-9 Unit Helps Recover Weapon Used In Stabbing

SUGAR GROVE, Pa. — A Chautauqua County K-9 Unit helped locate a weapon used in a reported stabbing early Saturday in Warren County, Pa.

Deputies were called around 2 a.m. to assist Pennsylvania State Police after two men got into an altercation in Sugar Grove, Pa. During the altercation, one of the men reportedly stabbed the other before fleeing into the town of Busti.

Officers located the suspect, who wasn’t identified, on foot along Hoag Road.

The man stabbed was taken to UPMC Hamot in Erie, Pa., where he was listed in serious condition. His name was not immediately released by state police.

“Patrols were advised that the male suspect may have discarded the knife used in the stabbing, somewhere along Hoag Road,” the Sheriff’s Office said in a press release.
