Man tells Fort Wayne Police he was stabbed in Wells Street parking lot

A man seriously injured with deep stab wounds told Fort Wayne Police early Wednesday morning that he was attacked in the parking lot of a Wells Street bar.

The man was being treated at a local hospital for his wounds after he was stabbed outside the Pantry, 1501 N. Wells St. The woman who brought him to the hospital told police he called her from the bar for a ride after he said he’d been stabbed, according to a Fort Wayne Police report.

According to the report, the victim told a different story, which follows:

The victim, who had been drinking, went with the woman in his vehicle to the bar. He parked toward the back of the parking lot.

When he got out of his vehicle a man threatened him before stabbing him with a very large knife. During the fight, the victim grabbed his attacker’s hand and the blade of the knife. They fought for a few seconds and the suspect stabbed the victim twice on his left side. He told police he didn’t know the man. The victim and the woman returned to his vehicle and she drove him to the hospital.

The victim was in serious condition.
