Man stabbed in back in North Lawrence

February 19, 2008


A 31-year-old man was admitted to Lawrence Memorial Hospital late Saturday night after being stabbed several times in the back.

Lawrence Police Sgt. Damon Thomas said one of the knife wounds reached the victim's liver.

Police arrested a 28-year-old woman on aggravated battery charges Sunday morning and recovered a knife they say was used in the assault, which occurred in the 500 block of North Eighth Street. Police would not release the victim's name, so no medical update was available from LMH.

"A 31-year-old man was admitted to Lawrence Memorial Hospital late Saturday night after being stabbed several times in the back."

Yet from the crack LJW staff in On the Record it said "Lawrence Police reported no calls on Saturday."

Again - did the LPD not report any calls OR did no 'so-called' reporter even ask?????

The Topeka paper reported this yesterday, WITH the name of the victim!

It provides the name of both the woman arrested in the incident and the victim. What is up with the LJW? Is a stabbing here in Lawrence not news?

Marion your comments are not needed. You always have some non-intelligent to say and is very annoying

This article is also stretched from reality. the victim was only stabbed once, not several times. things like this need to be reported on a little more accurate than this one and many others i've seen in the past. Although one must ask themself is it the reporters fault or is it the LPD. I know from experience that they do tend to make things look worse than they may actually be. Which ever the case is i'm sure the victim will get quite the laugh from this article.

KSNT reported this Sunday night.

And, North Lawrence already had its name changed to Jericho, but only for a week.

North Lawrence should have their entertainment license revoked over this.

"...Castro resigned before 4 am our time this morning, and still nothing on LJW."

Because they concentrate on articles about abortion and religion that produce the maximum number of hits.

Welcome to the North side, this is how we roll, so if your scared, don't come to my neighbor hood.

Anybody that doubts Bama can eat one. I only got stabbed once and they said it was potentially life threatening, but internal bleeding was minimal. LMH sent me to Stormont Vail in Topeka for observation. I'm out now.

because she and a male friend provoked more than they could handle. as the male was being disarmed of a weapon she came out of the shadows, stuck him in the back and thats all. this is why it is not always good to act like your the toughest person on the planet. in the end everyone gets hurt. they pushed the issue and my friends only defended themselves.

When I read the headline, i thought this person must work in the same office as I do. We're always getting stabbed in the back around here.

This could be the best comment board ever. How often do you get a stabbing victim posting comments about the story in which they were stabbed? Never? Never ever?

Aside from why the woman in question stabbed you, why did the police or the LJW believe you were stabbed repeatedly? Or were you?

The way I hear it....the "victim" and his numerous friends had this so called "male friend" down on the ground, working him over, and the "victim" was the one with the knife. Is that how you guys "roll" on the north side?

bama729 10 years, 2 months ago

well the way you heard it is wrong the man getting beat on the ground had a machette and the guys pummeling him were only defending themselves from the threat. if someone said they were coming to your house to kill you and they show up with wepons, would you and your friends not beat the hell out of them. im sorry his girlfriend was a scarred ass and had to stab my friend. the two showed up looking for trouble, and thats why the male was getting "beat down". bottom line when you bring weapons you might get your ass beat buy a few people. and thats how we roll everywhere.

bama729 10 years, 2 months ago

to answer thedrawl its probably because the girl who was arrested and the male who got beat up really bad were bragging that they stabbed someone six times and thought they killed him. i guess they thought that made them look tougher.

bama729 10 years, 2 months ago

first off keep my parents out of this sh. if you have a problem go fk yourself. of all the childish sh** you wanna take a personal shot at me. you are the one who is not anonymous idiot

misseve 10 years, 2 months ago

I wonder if the ljw will update or correct this article.

Monty Amick 10 years, 2 months ago

And y'all thought that this all came from KC or Toe-puka??!! Everything that happens in this town is a result of what we create and/or tolerate in our community. You can see how easy it was for me to invoke the anger of one of our fine posters here. More importantly is how easy it should be for all of us to become angered by the violence and stupidity that is becoming all to familiar in our town!! Wake up!! 99.99% of you have never seen me post here. Well, that's because I'm usually content to sit back and laugh my butt off at everyones silly posts and then just go to work and live my life. HELLO enough is enough ....... if you can talk the talk then WALK THE WALK. There are idiots among us!!! BEWARE!!! I'm not saying this to piss off "bama" or anyone else.... just realize that these acts are STUPID! You're not tough, cool, bangin', down or any of that other crap that you say when you do this stuff... YOU ARE JUST STUPID!!!!

For God's sake live, learn, love. It's the only way we will all survive.


p.s. can't wait for the dem's to agree with me because I am red as they get. stupid is as stupid does

Uh, northtown for someone who professes to be so much more intelligent than those of us who live in or around Lawrence, you sure do have horrible spelling skills. None of that pile of drivel made any grammatical sense at all. In the end, you came off as stupid, loud and angry with your sad little post. I've read it twice and I still have no idea what it says. The only thing I was able to discern from it is that you are an idiot.
