MAY 26, 2014-- A man is in the hospital after he was reportedly stabbed at Waldameer Park. Police were on the scene at Waldameer after a man was reportedly slashed in the neck near the games center. Waldameer Park officials say the victim was inside the park and ran out to the parking lot. They say he was not cooperating with police at the time but was taken to UPMC Hamot for treatment. Shortly after the incident police say a large fight broke out. Police have a few people in custody involving the fight but are not sure if they were involved in the stabbing at this time. Waldameer Park officials say they have security on the property and have not had something like this happen in years, but they are prepared. The park was slowly shut down as part of procedure following the incidents. Police say they are going to the hospital to talk to the victim again. The park says they only host fire works the day before major holidays now in case something happens in large crowds.
