(Updated at 3:45 p.m.) A man suffered life-threatening injuries after being stabbed near Columbia Pike over the weekend, according to police.
The incident happened just before 3 a.m. Sunday, on the 4600 block of S. Four Mile Run Drive.
Arlington County Police say they were dispatched for a report of a dispute between two acquaintances. Officers arrived on scene, found the victim — who was suffering from multiple stab wounds — and “immediately began performing life saving measures,” according to police.
The victim was rushed to a local hospital and is considered to be in critical but stable condition, according to ACPD spokeswoman Ashley Savage.
The suspect, 30-year-old Arlington resident Jeffrey Melendez, “was arrested and charged with malicious wounding,” according to a crime report. He is being held without bond.
“The exact nature of the dispute and what directly preceded the incident remains under investigation,” Savage told ARLnow.
Savage noted that ACPD officers are trained to provide emergency aid to trauma victims in situations where they are the first to arrive on scene.
“Officers receive training in TECC (Tactical Emergency Casualty Care) and are issued trauma kits which enables them to initiate stabilizing care and immediate first aid before the arrival of medical assistance,” she said.
