Report: Witnesses too drunk to give details on Chester Co. stabbing

The HeraldMay 21, 2014 

— A Chester County man was stabbed this week, but deputies were unable to make an arrest because all the witnesses were drunk, according to police.

William Tavaris Young, 29, was admitted to Piedmont Medical Center late Sunday with injuries from a stabbing. Piedmont officials contacted the Chester County Sheriff's Office to investigate.

Deputies went to Young's house on Culp Road in Edgemoor, where they found the glass on a storm door and bedroom window had been shattered, according to a sheriff's report. They also noticed blood all over the porch and ground.

A man at the home told investigators there was a misunderstanding and his cousin was cut. But when deputies pressed for more details, the man said he didn't know his cousin's name.

Several people offered different stories about the alleged stabbing, and officers "couldn't determine who was telling the truth due to the fact that they were all intoxicated," the report states.
