Police: Naked woman stabs 3 women during street fight in McKees Rocks
Police are searching for a naked woman who waded into the middle of a street melee Monday afternoon in the Hays Manor section of McKees Rocks and stabbed or slashed three of the combatants before fleeing.
The fight, apparently provoked by a love triangle involving women from two buildings, erupted shortly after 4:30 p.m. along Locust Street, Allegheny County Housing Authority Police Chief Mike Vogel said. One woman accompanied by a friend met the other woman accompanied by two friends in what Vogel described as “a mutual combative” situation.
No one admitted knowing who the naked woman is or why she became involved, Vogel said. One of her victims was taken to Allegheny General Hospital for treatment of a facial laceration and her friend was taken to Ohio Valley Hospital with lacerations and puncture wounds to the back, he said. A woman from the other group was treated by paramedics for minor lacerations, Vogel said.
Police are reviewing surveillance video in an attempt to identify and find the woman. The five original combatants will be charged and face possible eviction, Vogel said.
