Fight Breaks Out Over Cigarette


A refusal to share a cigarette has left one man injured.

Just after 11 p.m. Friday on the 2400 block of Tremont Street, police say the suspect approached the victim asking for a cigarette. When the victim refused to give him one, a fight broke out between the two men. The suspect pulled out a knife and sliced the victim, then fled the scene.

K-9 teams searched the area, near Fillmore and Nevada, for the suspect but were unable to locate him. He has been described as a black man, 20-30 years old, 6 feet tall and thin, wearing a dark t-shirt and shorts at the time of the assault.

The victim sustained minor injuries.

    If any blacks bring their trouble my way, there will be mass genocide of their species.

    Everyone needs to be extra careful out there in this city. I don't know what it is lately, but it seems at it takes is a minor irritation to set someone off and hurt you. Road rage, shootings, stabbings, robberies, you name it, we are getting it all. Everyone is stressed out due to being broke and what not. Just watch out for yourself and loved ones.

    No pun intended, but some way cigarettes will find a way to harm or kill you. Be tobacco free!

    Hmmm Sounds like when my husband and I went to Albuq. NM two weeks ago and my husband had just came out of Churches Fried Chicken and a thug came up to him and in a very threatening manner, DEMANDED he pass over the chicken. All I can say is, THANK GOD FOR HIS CONCEALED CARRY PERMIT, otherwise I would probably be burying my husband. Animals like this would just as soon kill a stranger over nothing and leave a family totally devastated. What has happened to America that we have become so de-humanized? Even animals have more class. It's sad and disgusting what we have evolved into.
