The 1100 block of Alma Street was cordoned off today while the Menlo Park Police Department detective unit investigated a stabbing incident that took place yesterday evening, according to the victim’s statement. MPPD was alerted by the Palo Alto Police Department, who had staff on the scene at Stanford Hospital when the victim was admitted, and MPPD responded at 5:11 am.
MPPD issued a statement that the victim suffered from non-life threatening injuries and is expected to make a full recovery.
Both Departments were on the scene mid-morning. The stabbing apparently took place near a dumpster, but that has not been corroborated officially by either Department.
MPPD asks anyone having information regarding this case to contact the main police line at (650) 330-6300 or the anonymous tip line at (650) 330-6395.
