Arrest made after stabbing at Tenacious D concert


Las Vegas police confirmed Sunday night that at least one suspect was arrested in connection with a stabbing at a concert at the House of Blues that left at least one man injured.

Police spokesman Jose Hernandez said there were conflicting reports, but it appeared two suspects were arrested Saturday night at the Tenacious D show inside the Mandalay Bay music venue.

Hernandez said one or two injured concertgoers were transported to University Medical Center with injuries not considered life threatening. He did not know the identity of the suspects nor what charge or charges they could face.

Hernandez said the concertgoers fought prior to the bloodshed.

"There was some sort of altercation that led up to the stabbing," he said.

An eyewitness said there was a violent incident about halfway through the Tenacious D show.

The show, scheduled for 90 minutes, was cut short by a half-hour, and concertgoers were told not to leave until the area was secured.

The House of Blues has a capacity of 1,500, and an eyewitness said the venue was nearly full when the show started.

Actor Jack Black and Kyle Gass make up Tenacious D, a rock-comedy duo.
