Gallup Police asking for public’s help

Gallup police were called to the scene of an apparent stabbing about 5:54 pm Feb. 1. A male walked by Jerry’s Café at 406 W. Coal Ave. and displayed a stab wound to bystanders by lifting his shirt outside the business.

He was wearing a camouflage shirt, black jacket and brown beanie.  Police were called and found him seated on a curb.  When the officer approached, there appeared to be blood coming from the man’s abdomen.  Medstar and the fire department were called.

The man did not respond to questions.  The officer rendered aid and the man was taken to the Gallup Indian Medical Center, where he was taken into surgery and then placed in ICU.

When officers returned to the scene to question people at Jerry’s Café, they learned nothing new about the incident.

Gallup police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man seen on a surveillance video walking away from the scene. He was wearing a black jacket, black hooded sweatshirt with a white stripe, khaki pants and a gray beanie.

If you know who this person is, please contact the Gallup Police Department at (505) 863-9365 and ask for Det. John Gonzales.
