Spat Over Drug Deal by Teenagers Led to Stabbing, Royal Oak Police Say

Spat Over Drug Deal by Teenagers Led to Stabbing, Royal Oak Police Say

(Royal Oak Police, July 28, 2021)

Royal Oak, MI – The Royal Oak Police Department is investigating a stabbing that occurred in the Senior Center parking lot, located at 3500 Marais. On July 27, 2021, just before 2:00 p.m., a 911 caller reported he was just stabbed and needed help.
Officers arrived in moments and located a male victim who had been stabbed in his  side. He stated he and his friend met with two white males in the parking lot for a drug transaction. As they were discussing the money, an argument ensued, and the suspects attempted to rob the victims.  Both suspects were armed with knives.

During the altercation, one suspect stabbed the victim in his side.  The victim and his friend ran from the parking lot. The 17-year-old victim from Warren was transported to  William Beaumont Hospital and treated for non-life-threatening injuries. The victim’s friend, who is also 17-year-old resident from Warren, was not injured.     Officers quickly set up a perimeter and attempted to locate the suspects with the assistance of a K-9 and the Clawson Police Department.     Although not located at the scene, both suspects were identified as 15-year-old Royal Oak residents.

The investigation is ongoing and anyone with any additional information is asked to  contact the Royal Oak Police Department, Criminal Investigations Division Lieutenant Al  Carter at (248) 246-3456.
