Stabbing in Harrisburg store over rivalry, police say

Posted: Updated:

A stabbing incident inside a Harrisburg convenience store that left two men wounded was the result of an ongoing rivalry between the two, police said Wednesday.

Harrisburg police said one of the men is the current boyfriend to the other man's estranged wife, and the two have a history of issues.

Both men were in the King Food Mart, at the intersection of North 6th and Division streets, when the incident occurred Tuesday afternoon.

One of the men reportedly was inside the store and waiting to pay when the other entered. One attacked the other and both suffered knife wounds, according to police, who said both men are 39-year-old Uptown residents.

One man left the store to get medical help at Harrisburg Hospital before officers arrived. The other man was still inside the store and had some cuts. He was taken to Penn State Hershey Medical Center, police said.

Neither man had life threatening injuries.

The men have not been identified and no charges have been filed because investigators are still trying to figure out what took place, police said.

Anyone with information may call Harrisburg police at 717-255-3163 or 717-255-3114.
