SCOTTSDALE, AZ - Scottsdale police are looking for the person who stabbed a man at Martini Ranch in Scottsdale.
Spokesperson David Pubins said the stabbing happened just before 2 a.m. Monday.
According to Pubins, a 34-year-old man was stabbed multiple times in the back as he was leaving the nightclub.
The man was transported to an area hospital where he was listed in critical condition.
This is the second stabbing at Martini Ranch in the past six months.
In January, Tyrice Thompson, 27, the bar's bouncer, was stabbed five time according to detectives. Thompson did not survive his injuries. Officers arrested the person they believe to be responsible for the attack.
The two crimes are not related, but the Scottsdale City Council is taking action, hoping to improve security for any venue with a history of public safety incidents.
A proposed ordinance states:
That a business with two (2) or more public safety incidents within a one (1) week period or three (3) or more public safety incidents within a one (1) month period be required to retain the services of a minimum of two (2) off-duty peace officers to supplement existing security personnel during peak times for a minimum period of three (3) months or until at least three (3) consecutive months have gone by without three (3) or more public safety incidents, which ever period is longer.
The public and business owners will have a chance to comment on the proposal at two meetings next month, one on July 16 and one on July 24.
As for the most recent stabbing, Scottsdale police are searching for the person responsible who is described as an African-American male, 5-feet-8-inches tall with a thin build.
He was last seeing wearing a red and black baseball hat, a dark shirt, jeans and red shoes.
