INDIANAPOLIS — Two people are dead and another wounded after a stabbing on the west side of Indianapolis, according to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.

Around 9:45 p.m. Monday, police were called to the 5600 block of Portsmouth Avenue in response to a stabbing. The deceased victims are a man and a woman.

On Tuesday, the coroner identified the victims as 28-year-old Dylan Dickover and 24-year-old Victoria Cook.

IMPD says the third stabbing victim–a female–is listed in critical condition.

Police have not released any information regarding a suspect.

Rev. Charles Harrison, with Indy Ten Point, is concerned about this stabbing; especially with the recent violent crimes.

Since Friday, he said 9 people have been shot, 7 stabbed, and 3 killed in just Indianapolis.

“We’re not in the trauma months yet. When it really gets warm we have a lot of activity. We really see a lot of shooting stabbings and homicides,” Rev. Harrison said.

Rev. Harrison expressed that staying home due to coronavirus may be playing a role in the violence as well.

“We’re seeing a rise in domestic violence; maybe people are getting on each other’s nerves a little more and we’re seeing that increase,” Rev. Harrison said.
