Stabbing on 1500 block of South Irving Street
DPD clarified that a separate stabbing that occurred around the same time on the 1500 block of South Irving Street was unrelated to this incident.
Reports of a stabbing along Irving street, just two blocks north and one block east from the stabbing at Mississippi and Federal came into DPD dispatch at roughly 2:16 a.m.
One man, the extent of whose injuries are not known at this point, was taken to the hospital. A man was taken into custody in relation to this stabbing as well.
“This does not appear to be related to the other stabbing at Federal,” DPD said in a tweet.
