WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Waynesboro police continued their investigation this morning after a stabbing in downtown Waynesboro Tuesday night.

Waynesboro police were continuing to look for two men, at one time believed to be on their way to Baltimore.

"At this time, no arrests were made in this incident," Police Chief Ray Shultz said.

Shultz said a man, Michael Hovis, was struck in the face and found lying on the sidewalk outside 120 W. Main St. A second man, Joshua Fink, was stabbed and traveled down Cleveland Avenue before collapsing in front of 206 W. Second St.

Shultz had no further identifying information for the victims, but a police sergeant said previously that both are white males and appear to be in their early 20s.

The suspect, a black male, got into a white car and left the scene shortly after 10 p.m., Shultz said.

Hovis was taken to Waynesboro Hospital, Shultz said. He was treated and released, a hospital spokeswoman said.


Fink was flown to Hershey (Pa.) Medical Center. His condition was not provided by officials.

No motive had been determined, Shultz said.

An officer was flagged down on West Main Street by two females, Shultz said. Witnesses who saw Fink collapse on West Second Street said they called 911.
