Suspects sought in stabbing
A stabbing Thursday night in the Stateline casino corridor sent a 23-year-old Carson City man to the hospital and authorities looking for six suspects.
The man, who was stabbed multiple times, was in stable condition as of Friday, said Douglas County Sheriff’s Sgt. Tom Mezzetta. The victim, whose name was not released, was at Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno.
Rescue personnel responded to the Village Center at about 9:30 p.m., where the man was treated and taken by CALSTAR helicopter to a hospital.
Authorities said the man was stabbed in the Harrah’s parking lot and then apparently drove his vehicle across the state line to the shopping center.
The cause of the altercation between these parties is unknown, authorities said.
The Douglas County Sheriff’s Department is seeking to identify six individuals, three males and three females, believed to have been involved in this stabbing.
Security surveillance video captured the images of the subjects while inside the casino.
