Police Question Officer’s Account of Weekend Stabbing Incident

Akeem Jones

A police officer was stabbed on Saturday night.  Akeem Jones reported to his fellow officers that he was attempting to part a fight between several persons near Water Lane, when one of the men turned on him and inflicted multiple stab wounds to his body.  It’s an account that is being questioned by his colleagues at the police department, since the incident captured on surveillance cameras shows a different sequence of events from the account he gave in his report.

“This officer was at an establishment and I’m certain that you are aware of the fact that even though the curfew has been extended on weekends that it doesn’t, how to say, extend for the opening of bars and other gambling establishments other than the casinos, but we are investigating this matter.  He was stabbed indeed.  The nature surrounding the stabbing incident is being investigated because the establishment had surveillance video and we will do further reviews, and then I can give you a proper detailed report.”
