Three things...

One. We're the assailants ever identified or arrested?

Two. How come there is no description of the vehicle the leaving the scene of the stabbing?

Three. How come the police waited to release the report of the stabbing to the public?

The Mac PD seems to be very slow to coming to terms with the increased violence, and the dramatic uptick in crime around Linfield and 3rd Street.I know enhanced patrols help, but how about releasing more detailed information to the public? First a robbery, then a kidnapping, and now a stabbing? It seems to me that these individuals (gang affiliated or not) are in a PATTERN of escalation that can only lead to more violence. If these events are indeed all connected, and these individuals continue on down this path, I believe that it is just a matter of time before there will be something along the lines of a home-invasion or a shooting of some sorts in, or around 3rd Street or the Linfield campus.
