Bethany police said a teen and his baby sister were stabbed
at a house near Northwest 36th Street and North Hollway Avenue. Police said the two showed up at a fire station near Northwest 36rd Street and Rockwell Avenue with stab wounds.
Officers said the grandmother's boyfriend, LaRoderick Allen
, got into a fight with her 19-year-old grandson. The grandmother was holding the baby when she tried to break up the fight
, and Allen then pushed her.
Police said Allen then stabbed her grandson and took off to a neighbor's house. The grandmother said her boyfriend was acting strange all day
"He's been tripping, singing a song, 'I'm gonna catch a case' all day. You know, weird stuff.
I didn't say anything to the man. Who knows? Let him get his stuff and go," said Diane Gabral. "I mean, I can understand if I knew my grandson had done something to him."
She said the fight started after she tried to step in between them.
"I didn't know he had a knife because it's so pitch-black out there," she said.
After Allen ran, another man came after him and tried to shoot him
, but Allen used an 18-year-old pregnant woman to shield himself
, police said.
No one was hurt when shots were fired. Police said they were looking for Isiah Lockett
in connection with the gunshots.
Allen was arrested. The 19-year-old and baby were taken to the hospital and rushed into surgery.
