Responding officers were unable to locate a victim in the area. Officers subsequently were able to contact individuals who clarified that the suspect in the reported stabbing was from an earlier event the prior evening.  Those contacted had spotted the suspect this morning in the 600 block of State St and had attempted to hold him for police.  However, these individuals' attempts to hold the suspect were unsuccessful and he ran into the parking ramp where he then escaped.  A possible identity of the suspect was provided, however not confirmed.  Investigation continuing.

The subject reported having left the knife unsheathed in the driver's door pocket after a hunting trip several days ago. The knife apparently shifted in the door pocket, with the blade protruding upward. The subject accidently impaled his leg on the knife when stepping out of the vehicle. Driver was treated by MFD and transported to a local hospital for further treatment.

The owner of the stolen vehicle (30 year old WM) informs officers that he reported his vehicle as stolen to MPD several days prior. Today, the owner of the vehicle was driving through Fitchburg with his mother looking for the vehicle. They observed the vehicle in the Cahill Main area occupied by two individuals. The suspects in the vehicle drove away, pursued by the victim and his mother. The pursuit terminated in the 2800 block Coho after both suspects (AAMs) fled from the vehicle.

The recovered vehicle was processed by an investigator and was returned to the registered owner.

The officers were able to locate the subject (20 year old WM) who was upset after his girlfriend told him to leave. The subject denied that he was suicidal and only that he was feeling upset over relationship issues. He was released after officers determined that he was not suicidal. Officers returned to speak to the caller (21 year old WF), who was so upset over the phone that officers were unable to communicate with her. The caller then disclosed that the suspect may have assaulted her during the night. She also disclosed a history of sexual abuse by the suspect, which occurred in another jurisdiction. That information was documented and the victim was taken to a local hospital for an FNE (Forensic Nurse Exam).  Evidence was collected and the outside jurisdiction was notified of the investigation. Investigation continuing.

The two reunited and began driving around when the subject told the caller he wasn't feeling well. The subject then went unconscious and the caller dialed 911. MPD responded and delivered a dose of naloxone which seemed effective. Subject was transported to the hospital and is in their care. No probable cause was developed, but due to suspicion of overdose, MARI paperwork was provided.
