Man suspected in stabbing hit by car while fleeing

A man was struck by a car Monday morning in front of a central Las Vegas Valley casino as he fled after stabbing another man.

The two men were arguing about 1:30 a.m. Monday in the parking lot of Skinny Dugan’s Casino & Lounge, 4127 W. Charleston Blvd., when one man suddenly stabbed the other several times with a pair of scissors, Metropolitan Police Department Lt. David Gordon said.

The stabber fled and ran into the eastbound lanes of Charleston where he was hit by a vehicle, Gordon said. That drove away from the scene, he said.

Both men were hospitalized and are expected to survive, Gordon said. Police are searching for the hit-and-run vehicle that struck the attacker.
