Said Commissioner William Evans: “I want to extend a job well done to my officers for the skilled investigation that led to the swift arrest of the suspect responsible for last night’s stabbing. Today’s arrest should send a strong, clear message to any fan who attends a game in our city and thinks it’s okay to engage in the type of violent behavior on display during last night’s game. If you go to a game and hurt or harm a fellow fan, we’re going to find you and make you accountable for your actions.”
