Police were called to Route 906 near Monessen side of the John K. Tener Bridge approximately 4:45 p.m. Tuesday for a report of a man being stabbed.

Monessen police Capt. Ed Lyons said information he received from the unidentified victim and a woman who was with him were very vague and didn't match.

“We're not really sure what happened,” Lyons said. “The two stories don't add up.”

Lyons said the victim, a black male, told police a car headed southbound on Route 906 from Monessen toward the bridge stopped, a man got out of the vehicle and an altercation ensued.

“He told us that he had the upper hand in the fight, so the guy pulled out a knife and stuck him,” Lyons said. “But the woman who was with him said that the car stopped on the other (northbound) side of the roadway.”

There was no indication how large the knife was.

Lyons said the victim was cut between the small finger and ring finger on his left hand and that he would probably need a few stitches to close the wound.

The victim was transported by Mon Valley Emergency Medical Services to Monongahela Valley Hospital in Carroll Township for treatment.
