On Tuesday night, January 9th deputies responded to a reported stabbing at the Walmart on the Rome Taberg Road in Rome.

According to Oneida County Sheriff Robert Maciol, at about 10:45 PM deputies were called when Walmart employees observed two males and two females in an altercation in the food section of the store. Employees stated that the two men began arguing with each other. They say that one man pulled a knife and then the other picked up a bottle and threw it, striking the man who had the knife. The two men then proceeded to throw bottles and cans at each other.

The two men were separated by employees. All parties left the store before deputies arrived. A description of the individuals and their vehicles were BOLO'd to other agencies.

The parties were later located in Rome with the assistance of the State Police and Rome Police. Deputies attempted to interview the subjects but they were uncooperative and refused to speak to law enforcement. One of the subjects did sustain a cut that was non life threatening. He refused medical treatment. Deputies reviewed the store video and said that a stabbing did not occur. Due to the lack of cooperation no arrests have been made.

If anyone was in the store and has any information they can all investigators at 315-765-2226.
