The Ponca City Police Department has recovered a knife following an early morning fight that resulted in two people suffering stab wounds in the 200 block of West Broadway Avenue on Saturday.
A resident living in the 400 block of North Oak brought a blood-covered knife to police that he found in his yard Saturday morning. Bricks, pieces of concrete and other items that may have been used as weapons in the brawl were recovered by police.
Police say the fight may have involved up to 10 subjects in the street at 221 West Broadway Avenue. It was reported sometime after 4 a.m. Saturday.
Two people suffered stab wounds. A 17-year-old girl was treated and released. A man in his 20s was admitted to Alliance Health Ponca City hospital. His injuries are not life threatening, police said.
The investigation continues, police spokeswoman Sherry Bowers said.
It appears that a resident of the West Broadway home went with friends to an apartment at The Timbers complex. A female subject at the apartment was intoxicated and wanting to fight.
The group left The Timbers after a confrontation and returned to the West Broadway residence. Shortly after returning, the female from The Timbers arrived at the home on West Broadway.
A small confrontation erupted into a much larger fight which spilled into the street where the stabbings and other assaults occurred.
Police took statements from several subjects all who have indicated that excessive amounts of alcohol had been consumed. Drug paraphernalia was also seized from the home.
