Kenan Hopkins reported on Facebook a stabbing Friday night:
Hey all – I’m the Founder/President of Valet Gourmet and it was one of our drivers that got stabbed on Elizabeth St last night. He is doing very well, and while the ambulance took him to the hospital, he was released shortly after.
He was stabbed in the back while leaving work and the person did not take any of his money or personal belongings. The APD says that they have a “person of interest” in custody. This is the first time in 11 years of being open we’ve had to deal with a violent crime situation.
I will gladly put Valet Gourmet’s resources behind this group if we have a way to band together and prevent this from happening again. We have over 60 people working with Valet Gourmet and I do not want to let a random incident like this ruin a great community and the organization that we’ve built.
Thanks for adding me to the group – I’m happy to have found it, even if it’s the result of an unfortunate incident.
Posts on Reddit by JunesongProvision indicate that the incident is being handled by Asheville Police Department, that it was not the result of a personal dispute and that the police may now have a suspect in custody.
Thanks to @RavenRavinoff on Twitter for noting the incident.
