HYANNIS – [MORE VIOLENCE… DEVELOPING] Take a look at the following HN video with audio…
At about 3:48PM this afternoon, Barnstable Police squad cars rushed to 71 Main Street for some type of fight which ended up with a male being stabbed.
A HN camera begins rolling just as officers rush up a flight of outside stairs to secure a second floor apartment.
As you will see, three individuals were immediately detained in handcuffs.
The stabbing victim, a young male, was able to walk out to an awaiting ambulance.
The two remaining females were questioned separately. You’ll see a plainclothes officer read one of the females her rights…
You’ll also hear a police sergeant describe the alleged weapon used, a folding knife… possibly hidden in one of the female’s bra…
Later radio transmissions indicate officers may have found the weapon… (That information has yet to be officially confirmed…)
HN is working on obtaining more details about today’s incident which was confirmed as a stabbing by various sources.
