“On April 28, 2023, at approximately 3:00 a.m., Charlottesville police officers responded to a stabbing at the Dairy Market located on 946 Grady Ave.,” police said in a Friday statement.
Upon arrival, officers said they made contact with two men, ages 42 and 27, who had both sustained stab wounds that were characterized as “serious injuries.”
“It was determined that the incident occurred after a minor traffic accident,” the police department said in its statement.
