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.
