ALIQUIPPA (KDKA) – A man was flown to the hospital after being stabbed multiple times in Beaver County Sunday night.
According to police, the incident happened at a home on Sheffield Road in Aliquippa, around 9 p.m.
The victim was allegedly stabbed in the neck during a fight inside the house. In an attempt to flee from the attacker, he allegedly jumped through a first floor window.
“We heard loud glass break, we looked across the street and we saw some guy coming across helping this other guy and he said, ‘Come on, let’s get out of here,’” Belinda Walker said.
The victim tried to run away from the scene, but did not get far because he was bleeding heavily from multiple stab wounds.
Police are currently trying to figure out what happened in the moments leading up to the victim tumbling out of the window.
“We know they were together on the front porch prior to the incident. We’re not sure what escalated into that. Drugs may have played a part in this matter,” Aliquippa Police Assistant Chief Don Couch said.
The victim has been identified as 19-year-old Bernard Jackson. A woman at the scene tried to stop the bleeding until paramedics arrived.
“A young lady – she really saved him because she applied pressure. Somebody took off their shirt, she wrapped it around his neck and they kept talking to him. He kept going in and out of consciousness, but that young lady, I do believe – I hope and pray he’s okay, but if he is it’s thanks to that young lady who helped him,” Belinda Walker said.
The other person allegedly involved is 31-year-old Josh Trosky, who has a long and violent criminal history. He was questioned and released by police.
The victim has been identified as 19-year-old Bernard Jackson, who was last listed in critical condition at a Pittsburgh hospital.
His condition is currently unknown and no arrests have been made.
