A purported knife attack Friday evening in Monessen landed two local men in the hospital, one with a gaping stab wound on his leg.

Monessen police said Mark Daube, 50, of 2304 Walsh St., Monongahela, and Virgil Walker, 57, of 108 Knox Ave., Monessen, began fighting around 6:30 p.m. at 413 Forest Ave.

Daube suffered a 5-inch stab wound to his right leg near the knee, which was bleeding profusely, according to police.

Walker allegedly told police Lt. Brian Vitale the altercation started because Daube wanted heroin that Walker did not have.

Daube denied the accusation, allegedly telling police he was at the location to visit his girlfriend. He reportedly told police Walker doesn't like his girlfriend, according to Vitale.

While at the police station, Walker allegedly admitted to stabbing Daube because the two were tussling and ended up flipping over a porch railing, according to police.

However, Daube allegedly claimed Walker fell because he was highly intoxicated, police said.

Both were transported via ambulance to Monongahela Valley Hospital for treatment, where they would be arrested upon their release, police said.
