EL PASO — Police are searching for the suspect involved in a double stabbing at the Tork Bar on Lee Trevino in East El Paso.
Officers were called out to the bar shortly before 1:00 a.m. Tuesday after two men were stabbed, possibly with glass from a broken bottle. The investigation revealed that two victims, 25 and 27, were confronted by a male suspect. The suspect then allegedly began to strike both victims with a broken bottle causing stab wounds in their upper torsos. Both men were taken to Del Sol Medical Center in serious condition.
The suspect in the stabbing ran away from the scene. Police believe he entered the Circle K on Red Sails and Pebble Hills and tried to wash off the blood because they found blood stains in the store's restroom.
According to witnesses at the scene, it all started as an incident with a jealous boyfriend. Police have not confirmed those details.
