Police find ‘large amount of blood,’ no victim after reported stabbing

There was bloody evidence but no victim at the scene of a reported stabbing Sunday night, Lexington police said.

As of Monday, no victim or suspect has been found.

Police were called to Shropshire Avenue at East Sixth Street just after 11 p.m. Sunday when someone said a man had been stabbed in the neck, Sgt. Jervis Middleton said. Officers found a “large amount of blood” and a blood-covered shirt.

Officers filed an assault report, Middleton said.

Police were called to a reported shooting at the same location about 8:40 a.m. Monday, but the report was unfounded, Lt. Jeremy Tuttle said.

“Nobody there knew anything about what we were talking about,” Tuttle said. “There were groups of people there who didn’t see anything.”
