Police investigate stabbing case at Phoenix apartment complex

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX - A man was rushed to an area hospital Friday morning in critical condition after he was stabbed multiple times at an apartment complex near 15th Avenue and Camelback Road.

The victim's injuries are life-threatening and police say the suspect is still on the loose.

This all started with three people in the complex's courtyard area.  Phoenix Police Sgt. Tommy Thompson says a man and woman were walking in the area together when they were approached by a male, who began flirting with the woman.  This went on for some time as the couple tried to get the man to leave them alone.

"At one point, the victim, a black male, told the woman to go inside the apartment.. that he would talk to this person.. make him leave.  At some point, an altercation ensued between those two men.  Unfortunately, our victim was stabbed and our suspect fled on foot," explained Thompson.

A woman who lives in the area told FOX 10 she is worried whether the victim may be her ex-boyfriend.

"They're just saying there's a little issue that's going on with this person that's the victim.. 'cause I just hope it's not my ex," said Tanya Becketts.

Police say the suspect was wearing a cowboy hat, which was found at the scene.  He is described as a Hispanic male who was wearing an orange or red shirt, 5' 6" to 5' 8" tall with a slender build.

"We really want to get this suspect in custody because the injuries  the man received are considered life-threatening," said Thompson.

The victim's name has not been released.

    Report: health risks at some nail salons

    One of the most surprising findings in a report from the New York City public advocate is that city officials have virtually no authority over how nail salons are run. The city can't enforce standards like they do with restaurants, so it's clearly a case of beauty buyer beware. We get our nails done without thinking too much about it.
