Elyria – Am Elyria man was taken to Elyria Memorial Hospital late Sunday night after a fight on 11th Street near West Ave.

Witnesses say a man apparently upset over a stolen bicycle threatened to stab someone. The man began arguing with 27 year old Shaun Justice who was in his car attempting to leave the area. Justice got out of the car and the fight began with the suspect pulling out a knife and slashing Justice across the face. The suspect then ran away south on West Ave.

Police were told while responding that the suspect was wearing jeans and a ball cap. Officers were directed to the area of the Market at 15th and West by neighbors. Officers spotted a man walking in the parking lot matching the description and took him into custody.

The victim’s girlfriend was brought to the Market and made a positive identification of the suspect. However, Police now believe the man was not involved and he has been released.

Justice was treated and released with an approximate 4 inch cut to his face.
