Preliminary investigation reveals that officers responded to a call for a B&E in progress at the station. Upon arrival, officers learned that a male was seen trying to get into the station through a glass panel door, when the door broke. The suspect then fled the area. Officers on scene observed the broken panel with what appeared to be blood on it.
Then, police say officers received information that a suspect matching the description of the male attempting to enter the station was at E. 116th and Forest, allegedly stabbed.
The possible suspect was being treated by EMS for cuts and lacerations to his body. While being treated, he provided inconsistent versions of how he obtained his injuries, but did indicate he went to a firehouse for help.
Based on information from witnesses, police say the male will be made a named suspect in the attempted B&E of the station.
The male was not arrested, as a result of his medical condition, and was transported to MetroHealth, where he was confined.
Detectives will follow up and based on results of their investigation, seek indictment at the grand jury. Anyone with more information is urged to call police.
At the time of the incident, personnel from Fire Station 41 were out responding to a fire in progress.
