A victim with a cut across his stomach went to the Wayne Township Trustee’s office early Monday to get help.

Fort Wayne Police were called at 9:07 a.m. to the trustee’s office, 320 E. Superior, on a report of a stabbing or cutting. It soon became apparent that the victim had been cut elsewhere and had gone to the trustee’s office for help. He said he had been attacked in a fight during an attempted robbery by another man who had fled the area, according to a police report.

The victim treated himself and left after telling officers he was OK, according to the report.

However, at 2:49 p.m. Monday, police were called to the 3300 block of Broadway to a report of a cutting or stabbing. Police found the same victim, who was taken to a hospital to be treated for his minor injuries, according to a second report.
