WAYNESBORO, PA. - At least one person was stabbed Tuesday night in downtown Waynesboro, and police were looking for two men believed to be on their way to Baltimore.

A man was lying on the sidewalk in front of 120 W. Main St. and put into an ambulance at 10:20 p.m. Spots of blood marked the second victim's apparent path down Cleveland Avenue and west on West Second Street.

Witnesses said the second victim, described as a white man in his early 20s, was clutching his side and screaming before collapsing on the back of a car in front of 206 W. Second St.

At press time, police were looking for a white Nissan driven by a white male, with a black male passenger, Sgt. Mike Bock said.


He said it was not clear whether both victims were stabbed or if one had just been seriously beaten.

"Last I heard, they were thinking of flying (the stabbing victim) to Hershey" Medical Center, Bock said.

A woman, who would only give her name as "Bonnie," said she was one of at least two people who called 911 for the West Second Street victim.

"He was stabbed. ... I saw he was down the street, holding his side and screaming," Bonnie said.

At 11:20 p.m., Bock said he did not have a possible motive but that people were being interviewed.
