BALDWIN (KDKA) – Police are investigating after one person was injured in an early Tuesday morning stabbing in Baldwin.
According to police, the incident happened in the parking lot of Hog’s Bar and Grill in the 1700-block of Prospect Road around 4 a.m.
“His girlfriend that was with him said that they had been in the bar and she had been in an altercation and verbal dispute with another male at the bar,” says Baldwin Chief Michael Scott. “When they left and were approaching their car to leave, these individuals followed them outside. Shortly after the girlfriend discovered that he had been stabbed.”
After escaping the parking lot attack, the hospital wasn’t the first place the couple headed to.
“They were heading to the Brentwood-Carrick area of Pittsburgh to his or her sister’s place,” Chief Scott says. “She tried to convince him to call the police or get medical attention and he agreed. He didn’t call the police but drove to Jefferson hospital.”
The man was shortly life-flighted to UPMC Presbyterian Hospital. The name of the victim and his girlfriend are not being released.
Police are now resorting to an surveillance evidence possibly picked up during the incident.
Chief Scott describes the attacker as a “5’9” white male, approximately 300 pounds, 27 years old, wearing a white hoodie and blue jeans who may live near the Food Land around the Lincoln Place area.”
Chief Scott also says the alleged attacker goes by the street name, “Fats.”
The stab victim remains at UPMC Presbyterian Hospital last listed in critical condition.
