Lubbock Police are investigating four stabbings that happened within a 25-hour period. Three of the stabbings happened overnight, while another occurred early Thursday morning. Out of the four cases, only one suspect is in custody, leaving the other three unsolved.
"There's nothing to suggest in any way, shape or form that these are connected in any way. These are totally random events," explains Sergeant. Tony Gribben from the Lubbock Police Department.
The 'random events' that have kept the Lubbock Police Department busy trying to fit the pieces together are a slew of unsolved stabbings. Thomas Fuller remains in critical condition at UMC after suffering a stab wound on Thursday morning. According to police, 17-year-old Fuller and his friends met at the Charles A. Guy Park in the 3800 block of 93rd Street around 1:15am Thursday. An argument occurred between at least two of the boys resulted in the stabbing. Police are still searching for the suspect in this case. A warrant has been issued for suspect William Tanner Robinson. He's described as 17-years-old, approximately 5'7, weighing160 pounds, with blonde hair and blue eyes.
The second stabbing took place just before 10pm Thursday night at 1918 96th Street. Police say 45-year-old Greg Marshall and 22-year-old Samuel Ramirez were unloading building materials when an argument broke out between them. When Marshall's nephew intervened, Ramirez turned on the nephew. Marshall then allegedly stabbed Ramirez multiple times. Police later arrested Marshall and he remains behind bars at the Lubbock County Jail. Ramirez is listed in satisfactory condition at UMC.
The suspect in the third stabbing remains on the run. Officers arrived in the 7700 block of Ash early Friday morning to find 18-year-old April Fortenberry with a single stab wound. Fortenberry told police it happened near Lowery Field at 64th and Avenue L. She and a friend had pulled over for better cell phone reception, when she got into an altercation with a female walking by. Fortenberry is now listed in serious condition at UMC.
Finally, police are looking for suspects in a stabbing at a North Lubbock nightclub. It happened just after 2am at the Rincon Norteno Club at 510 North University. That's where Librado Mungia and his friends were attacked by three people.
"The two victims and a lady were leaving the club walking to the car which was parked near by when they were confronted by a group of three Hispanic males," says Sergeant Gribben.
Mungia was stabbed six times, one of his friends was also hurt. Mungia was taken to UMC, where he underwent surgery and currently remains in serious condition.
"It's an unusual night to have three aggravated assault stabbings like that are high profile," adds Sergeant Gribben.
Again, police are still looking for suspects in three of these stabbings, so if you have any information at all you are encouraged to call CrimeLline at 741-1000.
