A man was stabbed in the chest after a fight broke out at a bar near 16th and Valencia around 11 p.m. last night, according to sources in the neighborhood.
One eyewitness said the man was stabbed after an altercation in front of Delirium bar on 3139 16th Street.
“The guy who got stabbed ran down 16th, but the guy who stabbed him got surrounded and beat up by a bunch of guys outside of the bar,” he said.
After 11 p.m., police closed off the area surrounding the stabbing, on 16th and Valencia streets in front of Arinell pizza, according to other sources. One onlooker said he saw a large group surround and beat the man responsible for the stabbing, as the injured party, who had possibly also been stabbed in the face, fled down the street.
“We saw people running down from Albion to Valencia,” said a witness who was working at a restaurant nearby. “I heard the guy who got stabbed ran down to Valencia and fell down. Then police taped off the street.”
Police have not responded to queries about the stabbing. We will update this post as we get more information.
