Charges Downgraded To Just a Snipping

"Police - Stabbing report unfounded."

No one was actually stabbed in a reported stabbing Wednesday morning at Castle and 15th streets, according to police.

Officers responded to the area about 6:48 a.m. in reference to a stabbing call. When they arrived they found two male subjects who had been involved in a physical altercation. The fight started inside 1603 Castle St. before moving into the street, said Wilmington Police spokeswoman Linda Rawley.

"One man was holding a pair of scissors and the other had minor scrapes and bruises," Rawley said. One of the men was taken to New Hanover Regional Medical Center by ambulance where he was treated for minor injuries, she said.

I wonder if the guy with scissors tried to flee? Can you be charged for running with scissors?
