Investigation into Stabbing Incident at 6300 Ranchester Drive

June 8, 2020 - Houston police are investigating the stabbing of five people at 6300 Ranchester Drive about 2 a.m. on Sunday (June 7).

Three of the five male victims were transported to an area hospital in stable condition.  The other two male victims were treated at the scene.

HPD Major Assaults & Family Violence Division Detectives G. Black and L. Kauffman reported:

The victims were rapping on the patio of their apartment when three unknown suspects, described only as Asian males, approached them.  The two groups then engaged in a "rap battle" across the wooden fence that enclosed the patio.  As the "rap battle" went on, tensions started to escalate.  

At some point one of the groups started a fight involving knives and broken beer bottles.  Following the fight, the suspects fled the scene in an unknown condition.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the HPD Major Assaults & Family Violence Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
