Police say teen stabbed man for not wanting to bet on race

KSAL StaffMay 2, 2015

A 45-year-old man was in critical condition after police say he was stabbed by a 17-year-old for refusing to place a bet on a foot race between the two.

The Wichita Eagle reports the unidentified victim was visiting someone who lived in a Wichita neighborhood when he and the teen decided around midnight they would race.

Police spokesman Sgt. Roger Runft says the older man refused to bet on the race, so the teen ran into the house where the 45-year-old was visiting, came out with a knife and stabbed the man in the chest.

The victim was taken to a hospital with a punctured lung, but is expected to survive.

Police don’t know if the 17-year-old and victim knew each other, and they haven’t located the suspect.
