Stabbing at Stroud Mall

STROUD TWP., Pa. - One person was stabbed Tuesday evening at the Stroud Mall in Monroe County.

Police are actively seeking the suspect they describe as being a Hispanic male, very slim, five feet nine inches tall, between the ages of 18 and 20 with a very thin beard and multiple tattoos, including on his neck.

According to Caitlin Huffine, a Subway employee in the food court, a fight started in the food court and then continued outside around 6 p.m.

"People started coming in to Subway asking for wet towels and cloths [saying] that someone got stabbed outside so then we're rushing out there to try to help him," Huffine said.

Police say the suspect may have fled in a late model red Mustang.

The victim, a male between the ages of 18 and 20, suffered multiple stab wounds to the abdomen area.

He was transported to Pocono Medical Center.
