Police Investigate After Male Enters Rivers Casino With Wound to Arm

Date: August 9, 2019
Incident Type: Assault
Location: Zone 1/Zone 6

Pittsburgh Bureau of Police officers from Zone 1 responded to reports of a male who walked into 777 Casino Drive at around 4 p.m. with some type of stab wound.

When officers arrived they met with a male victim with superficial cut wound to one of his arms. The male was later transported to a local hospital where he was treated.

He told police that a male had slashed him with some sort of knife at the Allegheny T station about an hour and a half earlier. A review of security camera footage did not turn up any evidence of this. An initial search for a crime scene given the male's changing information to police turned up empty. Further investigation at the hospital revealed the wound stemmed from a dispute in a different part of the city earlier in the day.

April Loughner, 33, of Pittsburgh was arrested and charged with Simple Assault and Strangulation in that incident.
