Police seek three suspects in stabbing on Las Vegas Strip

Updated February 29, 2020 - 7:30 pm

Las Vegas police were looking for three people suspected in a stabbing on the Strip that sent one person to a hospital Saturday morning.

Metropolitan Police Department dispatch logs indicate officers were called about 7:30 a.m. to 3325 Las Vegas Blvd. South, the address of the Palazzo, after report of an assault with a deadly weapon.

As of 10 a.m., an area was blocked off inside the Grand Canal Shoppes. The Brookfield Properties upscale shopping mall is located inside The Venetian and Palazzo.

Metro Lt. Ken Nogle said a person was seen cleaning an item in a fountain shortly after the stabbing. Detectives were searching for three male suspects who are believed to be connected to the stabbing, he said.

Giving a preliminary account of what happened, Nogle said the three suspects and the person stabbed were in a physical fight. He said two suspects reportedly assaulted the person with hands and feet, and a third suspect stabbed the person.

One person was taken to a hospital with a “non-life-threatening” injury, police said.
