A 19-year-old man was stabbed early Saturday morning during a brawl outside of a home on the 900 block of Tilden.

A Las Vegas police officer came upon the scene at 1:24 a.m. Saturday while patrolling the area. He saw at least 15 people on the street and what appeared to be a fight, according to a preliminary police report on the incident.

Most of the people there fled when they saw the officer, but a few continued fighting on the ground. The officer said he ordered them to stop fighting, and when they didn’t, he used pepper spray to gain control of the situation.

As officers were interviewing people, they were informed that one of the men involved in the altercation, Devin Glenn, had been stabbed. Glenn was transported to Alta Vista Regional Hospital where he was treated for a half-inch knife wound on his back, according to the preliminary police report.

Police said Glenn wasn’t very cooperative when he was interviewed about the knife wound, telling authorities that he rolled over on something on the street. A witness told police he saw another man stab Glenn.

According to the report, people were outside of the home picking up trash after a party when a group of men showed up and began to fight with them. Glenn, who lives on the 900 block of Tilden, and two others — Pierre Lovato, 35, of the 2400 block of Calle Dulce and Jose Mosqueda Jr, 18, of the 900 block of Tilden — were cited for a misdemeanor charge of public affray and were released.

Las Vegas Police Chief Christian Montaño said the stabbing remains under investigation, although no charges have yet been filed.
