While officers were dealing with Mcadoo, 9-1-1 advised them of a stabbing victim who had just checked into the hospital. Officers responded to both the hospital to interview the victim and then also to an apartment in the 1000 block of W. 7th, where the victim said there had been an altercation over some belongings between him and the suspect. Earlier the victim had arrived at the apartment to find Mcadoo already inside. Mcadoo left the residence and later the victim discovered some of his personal items were stolen.
