FROM A NEWS RELEASE SENT TO THE WWAY NEWSCHANNEL 3 NEWSROOM FROM THE WILMINGTON POLICE DEPARTMENT:
WPD officers responded to 6th and Swann Streets for a fight about 10:25 this morning.
A man who lives in that neighborhood apparently had been fighting with another man and was stabbed in the abdomen. The victim, age 57, was reluctant to go to the hospital to be checked out, but WPD officers at the scene pressured him to do so. His injury does not appear to be life-threatening.
