Another 16th Street Mall Stabbing: No Arrest, Fears of More Crimes Mounting
Earlier this month, we told you about a stabbing on the 16th Street Mall.
Included among them was an attack on a tourist after he complained about teens littering, a double stabbing, a series of sex assaults that took place over a matter of minutes, and a separate sex assault for which we've found no reported evidence that an arrest was ever made.
Now, add another crime to this roster.
In the wee hours of this morning, just after 1 a.m. a stabbing reportedly took place near the intersection of 16th and Champa.
The area is captured in the following interactive graphic. If you have problems seeing the image, click "View on Google Maps."
Details about what happened are few.
Indeed, at this writing, the Denver Police Department hasn't even bothered to tweet about the incident.
However, Fox31 notes that the stabbing victim was transported to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
And 9News adds that the suspect may be a member of the homeless community, though no description has been made available.
This is precisely the kind of thing that merchants on the 16th Street Mall want stopped. But with warmer weather on the way, the chances of more crimes of this sort will only increase.
