SYCAMORE – Sycamore police are investigating an incident in which two people were stabbed early Saturday morning, one with a piece of wood, and investigators say those involved aren't exactly cooperating.
"We're still actually trying to investigate this," said Sycamore Police Sgt. Justin Kness Sunday. He said no arrests have yet been made as of Sunday evening. "The folks involved weren't entirely cooperative. There are two clear parties, but we aren't sure how many people. Anywhere from three to six. Neither is being completely forthcoming about what was going on."
Kness said police responded to reports of multiple people stabbed shortly after midnight Saturday, and while reports showed some of the victims ended up in front of MVP Sports Bar, 124 S. California St., police believe the isolated altercation between two groups took place down the road, where the alley empties into California Street in the 100 block.
"One person was struck, he says, in the head by a piece of wood that was in one of the involved parties' vehicles that apparently she uses as a prop for her hood when she's changing her oil," Kness said. "The other person sustained cuts fairly superficial, needed sutures, to their arm and face. They were both transported to the hospital. Both have conflicting stories."
Kness said both victims were men, one stabbed by wood in the face and the other cut on his left arm and right side of the face. It's unclear whether the second victim was stabbed with a knife, he said, since not all witnesses were able to corroborate the weapon, and police found no knife on the scene.
"Both sets have been reluctant to answer phone calls or accept any followup," Kness said. "We fully believe it was an isolated incident."
