MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — The Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday released a description of a man wanted in the stabbing of three people last weekend in the parking lot of Paradise City Night Club in Bunker Hill, W.Va.

The black male was described as having a light complexion and 5 feet 6 inches tall, with short hair and “pork chop” style sideburns, tattoos on his right arm and a tattoo on the left side of his neck, according to sheriff’s office news release.

Video footage of a fight in the strip club’s parking lot shows an individual get out of a vehicle, pull out a knife and stab three people amid a fight involving about a dozen people, police said.

The sheriff’s office began investigating the incident about 5 a.m. Saturday when the Winchester (Va.) Police Department notified the agency that two people were being treated for stab wounds at Winchester Medical Center, the release said.

The victims, who were treated for nonlife-threatening cuts to the chest area, later told police that there was a fight in the club’s parking lot.

The club is at 9734 Winchester Ave. in the southern end of Berkeley County.

Anyone with information about the stabbing may contact county sheriff’s Deputy Michael St. Clair at 304-267-7000 or Berkeley County Crime Solvers at 304-267-4999.

The stabbing came little more than a week after a male and a female dancer were shot at a Martinsburg-area strip club on Aug. 1, according to police.

As of Monday, both people in that incident remained hospitalized, but their medical conditions have been upgraded to stable, Deputy Lt. Gary Harmison said Tuesday.

The shooting was reported at 3:11 a.m. at Legz Club, 84 Aero St., police have said.

Harmison said he did not have a clear description of the possible shooter to release at this time, but said anyone who might have information may contact the sheriff’s office or the crimes solvers hotline.
