Police, Deputies Investigate String of Stabbings

By  | 

RENO, NV – Reno police are investigating two stabbing incidents they say are not related to each other or another incident in Cold Springs.

Police say around 7PM Tuesday, a man was stabbed near the downtown movie theater. He's being treated and police have no suspects.

Hours later, shortly after midnight, police were called to an area near Mill and High Streets, where they found three people with stab wounds. One is in critical condition, and police say one of the three may be the attacker, but they are still investigating.

Meanwhile, Washoe County sheriff’s deputies are investigating an overnight stabbing in the Cold Springs area that doesn't seem connected to either Reno incident.

Deputies say a man was sent to a hospital with stab wounds near his torso. Deputies had gotten the call about the stabbing at 1:46AM; the victim had walked into the 7 Eleven on White Lake Parkway asking for help.

No arrest has been made and the condition of the victim hasn't been released.
