Argument leads to stabbing in Derry

Union Leader Correspondent
DERRY -- A man was stabbed in the arm and upper back Wednesday afternoon, police said, after an argument between roommates and a house guest escalated to physical violence.

Police responded to the scene of 1 Franklin St. at about 3 p.m. for reports of a disturbance involving a knife, said Derry police Capt. Vern Thomas. 

Officers found one man with serious knife wounds to his arm and upper back at the scene.
Thomas said the injured man was transported to Parkland Medical Center in Derry with non-life threatening wounds.

Investigators believe that an argument started in a second-floor apartment between roommates and a guest at the home, Thomas said.

The argument escalated into a physical fight between one of the roommates and the guest, and Thomas said and it was the roommate who was stabbed.

No arrests have been made in connection with the incident. Thomas said police are investigating the case as a first-degree assault.

While on scene, officers requested a second ambulance to assist an apartment resident who was having difficulty breathing. Thomas said the woman, who was present but not directly involved in the investigation, was examined at the scene but not hospitalized.
