MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — A warrant has been issued for the arrest of a Martinsburg man in connection with multiple stabbings that took place early Friday morning at a Berkeley County bar.
Deputies said two women got into a fight at Shipwrecked Bar and Grill along McMillan Court. The women and a group of men were asked to leave the bar and investigators said that’s when, for some reason a man, who police have identified as Elan Bell-Veney of Martinsburg, then got involved. He had a knife.
Investigators said Bell-Veney was swinging it wildly and stabbed five men including one victim in the stomach and another in the chest. The injuries were serious but not life-threatening.
Police are looking for Bell-Veney. They found his car Friday afternoon. They said he’s been out on probation or parole in connection with previous crimes.
