CONOWINGO — An in­ves­ti­ga­tion is con­tin­u­ing af­ter a man was stabbed in the back dur­ing a fight out­side a Conowingo bar over the week­end, leav­ing the vic­tim with a wound that re­quired “mul­ti­ple surg­eries,” ac­cord­ing to Mary­land State Po­lice.

As of Tuesday, de­tec­tives had not iden­ti­fied the as­sailant or as­sailants in the in­ci­dent that oc­curred out­side the Susque­hanna Inn Bar & Grill in the 100 block of Conowingo Road some­time be­tween 10: 30 and 11 p. m. Satur­day, po­lice said. The vic­tim, whom in­ves­ti­ga­tors iden­ti­fied only as a 46- year- old Penn­syl­va­nia res­i­dent, re­mained in Chris­tiana Hos­pi­tal in Delaware on Mon­day, po­lice added.

The vic­tim and his friend were leav­ing the bar when sev­eral men, who were stand­ing out­side the rear exit of the es­tab­lish­ment, con­fronted them, po­lice re­ported.

“For un­known rea­sons, an al­ter­ca­tion en­sued which re­sulted in the vic­tim and his friend leav­ing abruptly. Upon the vic­tim re­turn­ing to his res­i­dence in Penn­syl­va­nia, he dis­cov­ered that he ( suf­fered) a stab wound to the back,” out­lined Sgt. DaVaughn Parker, an MSP spokesman, adding that the vic­tim was then trans­ported to the hos­pi­tal.

The stab­bing was re­ported to Penn­syl­va­nia State Po­lice, which, in turn, no­ti­fied MSP shortly be­fore 1 a. m. Sun­day, po­lice noted.

As of Tuesday, in­ves­ti­ga­tors still were try­ing to de­ter­mine what trig­gered the con­fronta­tion and gather de­tails sur­round­ing the in­ci­dent.

“State po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tors are hop­ing any­one with in­for­ma­tion will come for­ward,” Parker said.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion that might help in­ves­ti­ga­tors is urged to call the agency’s North East Bar­rack at 410-996-7800 — and “call­ers may re­main anony­mous,” ac­cord­ing to Parker.
