Central City Gazette Sports Beat
Sunday, July 25th, 1993
The Central City Police Department confirmed an arrest was made in the fatal stabbing of a Midtown man early Saturday morning.
“The victim was pronounced dead at the scene,” an officer with the ever-eloquent CCPD stated. “He was sliced up pretty good.”
The reason for the stabbing is currently under investigation, but a suspect was arrested at the scene. Neither the victim nor the suspect have been identified at this time.
A witness to the incident claimed a fight occurred outside of her home shortly after midnight on Saturday morning. The witness described her perception of the events: “I was watching my stories on the television when I heard a commotion. I went to the window and saw three men arguing. One of the men stabbed another and the third ran away. I’m not sure what the fuss was about, but I locked my door and called the police.”
In January, the number of reported violent crimes reached a twelve-year high in Central City. Following mass arrests, the violent crime rate has since dropped to a twenty-year low. Recently, however, the pendulum appears to be swinging upward.
Are we headed into a new era of crime in Central City? Only time will tell.
