Man Lifeflighted To Billings After Being Stabbed
A 27-year-old male suffered numerous injuries Thursday, May 21, when he was stabbed at the homeless shelters off Rodeo Road southeast of Wolf Point.
Wolf Point Police officers responded to the area after a business on the 100 block of First Avenue South reported that an unidentified witness reported that someone had been stabbed near the huts at 1:18 a.m.
Though out of their jurisdiction, WPPD responded because all Fort Peck Tribes Department of Law and Justice officers were busy elsewhere. The Wolf Point Volunteer Ambulance Service also responded.
The 27-year-old male was transported to Northeast Montana Health Services -Trinity Hospital with multiple stab wounds to legs and arms. He was later lifeflighted to Billings due to the severity of his injuries.
Officers from Roosevelt County Sheriff’s Office and Fort Peck Tribes also arrived to the incident, but officers were unable to locate the suspect who had fled.
Several witnesses were interviewed regarding the suspect and victim, who law enforcement declined to identify.
WPPD turned the investigation over to the Fort Peck Tribes Department of Law and Justice.
