TOWN OF ITHACA, N.Y. — Two people were stabbed late Wednesday night during a fight at an Ithaca restaurant near Cornell University, deputies said.
The double stabbing at Agava Restaurant on Pine Tree Road was reported at 11:50 p.m.
Tompkins County 911 dispatchers were initially told three people had been stabbed, Cornell University Police said in a campus alert. When the Tompkins County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrived at the restaurant, deputies discovered two people had been stabbed, not three, deputies said.
Deputies did not immediately release the conditions of the two people who were wounded.
A suspect — described as a black man between 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall, wearing a leather jacket — fled from the scene in a white Nissan Altima, Cornell police said. The car was later found abandoned in Lansing, police said.
“The Tompkins County Sheriff’s Office reported that more suspects may have been involved but are unidentified at this time,” Cornell police said.
Deputies have asked anyone with information about the stabbing to call (607) 257-1345 or the department’s confidential tip line at (607) 266-5420.
