Arlington Heights police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 8:38 PM Sunday, August 27, 2017 to a report of a person stabbed on Campbell Street near Vail Avenue in front of 14 West Campbell Street.

Police on the way to the Campbell Street address reported discovering a second stabbing victim stabbed in the neck near the parking garage at 22 South Vail Avenue. The victim was apparently just south of Harmony Park, but on the west side of Dunton Avenue. It is possible that one of the victims wasn’t actually stabbed, but suffered another injury.

VIDEO of Crime Scene Investigation …

Monday morning police confirmed that one person was stabbed after intervening in a fight between two friends.

Police say two friends entered into a physical fight and one friend hit the other with a beer bottle Sunday night.

Police say the bottle-wielding friend tried to run, but a third person intervened and tried to stop him. Police say the stabbing suspect pulled out a knife and stabbed the victim, then fled from the scene. The suspect is not in custody.

At least one witness described the suspect as a male/black 5’9 to 5’10” thin build, with a buzz cut haircut and wearing a black hoodie. The suspect description had not been confirmed by police as of 10:30 p.m.

Police did not say where on the street the victim was stabbed or where the stab wound was located on the victim’s body. Police also did not say whether the person that intervened knew or was known by the two injured victims.

Both victims were transported to Northwest Community Hospital by Arlington Heights Fire Department firefighter/paramedics. Since the crime scene yellow tape barrier was taken down by about 9:30 p.m., the victims’ injuries were believed to be not life threatening. Police confirmed that the injuries were not life threatening.

Police were gathering evidence and speaking with witnesses from about 8:45 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. from both victim locations. The crime scene was apparently in front of 14 West Campbell Street, where firefighters accomplished a biohazard cleanup near the curb on the south side of Campbell Street. A significant amount of blood was located near the curb behind a sidewalk bench, and this is presumed to be the location of the actual stabbing.

Any witnesses or anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the Arlington Heights Police Department at 847-368-5300.

As of 11:00 a.m. Monday August 28, 2017 there was no mention of the incident on the Village of Arlington Heights Police Department’s official Facebook and Twitter social media accounts. The crime occurred in the highly regarded downtown restaurant district — one of the highlights, if not the top highlight, of Arlington Heights.
