Man Stabbed at Pittsfield Bar on Thanksgiving Eve
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — A man stabbed in a local bar Thanksgiving eve is expected to survive after showing up at Berkshire Medical Center's emergency room.
Police and ambulance responded to the report of the stabbing at Thistle and Mirth at 46 West St. at about 9:40 p.m.
A large number of patrons were exiting the bar and ramen restaurant when police arrived and, according to Lt. John Mazzeo, they found evidence of the stabbing but not the victim.
The man, who was not identified, arrived at BMC shortly afterward.
Thistle and Mirth was shutdown and the area around West and McKay closed off as police investigated the incident. Several posts to Facebook show cruisers and the ambulance at the location. After the incident, several areas outside of the bar were closed off with caution tape.
"This was not believed to have been a random act, and as such there is no immediate threat to the public," Mazzeo stated in a press release early Thursday morning. .
Members of the Patrol Division, Detective Bureau, Anti-Crime Unit, and Crime Scene Services assisted at the scene and at BMC.
