Stabbing in Scranton Under Investigation

SCRANTON -- Two people were rushed to the hospital after reports of a stabbing in Scranton.

Police were called to Hamm Court just before 9 p.m. Monday.

Three men were involved in the fight on Hamm Court. Two will face charges of assault, harassment, and disorderly conduct. One of the men will face a summary harassment charge.

Two brothers, Timothy Stigerwalt, 20, and John Stigerwalt, 19, went to Hamm Court to find a girl. They ended up fighting the girl's father John Eavarone, 36.

Police say Eavarone has a knife and cut John Stigerwalt. The cut was described as a minor stab wound on the neck.

Timothy Stigerwalt and Eavarone will face the more serious charges.

Newswatch 16 spoke with a neighbor who heard the commotion happening right outside her home.

"I grew up here. It's not the neighborhood that it was when I was 10 years old, but it's very nice. It's very safe. It's very clean. But when something like this happens, it's always disturbing," said Mary Kay Maldonato.
