'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

McKeesport police are searching for a man whom they suspect stabbed two people Monday night at a residence in the 2400 block of Cleveland Street.

Police accuse Markese Reese, 18, of McKeesport of slashing a man's arm and inflicting a puncture wound in a woman's hand at about 11:19 p.m. Neither injury is considered life-threatening, according to police.

Reese is described as black, 6 feet 4 inches tall and 200 pounds. Police say he entered the home while several people were visiting. He allegedly exchanged words with some of the visitors then entered the kitchen where he grabbed two knives.

Police Capt. Tim Hanna said the suspect began waving the knives at those in the home. The male victim was stabbed while trying to stop the suspect and the female was stabbed shortly after.

Police said the suspect threw one of the knives in the kitchen sink before fleeing the home. A police dog located the second knife outside in a yard.

Hanna said Reese is wanted on several other outstanding warrants.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 412-675-5015.
