Duncan police still on lookout for stabbing suspects

DUNCAN — The Duncan Police Department is still actively investigating a stabbing at the water treatment facility from earlier this month, a detective said Tuesday.

Detective Bill Fitzhugh, who has looked into the case since it happened April 14, said they are looking for the three males wearing hoodies and masks that they were initially told about.

The victim was stabbed three times in the left leg, once in his left shoulder and had cuts across his stomach.

He was released from the hospital the next morning.

Fitzhugh said the three suspects used their victim to get through to the police department.

“He stated that the three told him he was a message to police and that no one in Duncan is safe,” Fitzhugh said.

Despite the dangerous message to Duncan residents, Fitzhugh said citizens have nothing to worry about.

“I would tell everyone not to panic,” Fitzhugh said. “I don’t think there’s anything to panic about.”

Fitzhugh said he will follow up on any leads in order to get to the bottom of the case.

If anyone has any information, they are urged to call the Duncan Police Department at (580) 255-2112.
