NORTH BELLE VERNON (KDKA) — Police are looking for suspects following a triple stabbing overnight during a bar brawl in Westmoreland County.
Authorities were called around 1:30 a.m. to the Just A Tavern bar on Broad Street in North Belle Vernon.
According to the North Belle Vernon police chief, one woman and two men were stabbed in the incident.
The woman and her boyfriend were flown by medical helicopters to Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh for treatment. The woman’s injuries are said to be life-threatening.
A third victim fled from the bar after the incident. Police found him several blocks away at the Candlewood Suites hotel in Room 314. He was bleeding from multiple stab wounds to the chest. Paramedics bandaged him up and then took him to Forbes Hospital by ambulance for treatment.
The names of the victims have not yet been released.
Witnesses inside the bar told investigators that while they saw lots of pushing and shoving during the melee, they did not see who was responsible.
Investigators are checking the video from inside the bar and surveillance cameras from outside.
No arrests have been made.
The police chief also tells KDKA that the bar is not a nuisance establishment.
Tameika West lives in the neighborhood and says the place is no nuisance.
“Not at all. The owner is very family-orientated, it’s a family-orientated bar, everyone that works there are people in the family,” she said.
