The Tompkins County Sheriff's Department says they're still looking for information on a stabbing that occurred early Thursday evening at the Regal Cinema at the Shops at Ithaca Mall.
Regal Cinema at the Ithaca Mall. 14850 file photo.The Sheriff's Department says they were dispatched to the mall at 7:07pm for reports of a fight and possible stabbing at the movie theatre entrance, and when they arrived, "found substantial evidence indicating that someone was severely injured," but couldn't find a victim or anyone else involved. Deputies searching the area eventually found a victim inside one of the theatres, and confirmed the victim had been stabbed multiple times.
The injured man was transported to the hospital by Bangs Ambulance for treatment. Deputies believe the victim was assaulted and stabbed by "two light skin black males who witnesses say may have left in a blue SUV type vehicle," and they ask that anyone with information about the incident contact the TCSD investigative division at 607-257-1345. One of the suspects may have suffered a severe laceration himself during the scuffle.
