Deputies investigate stabbing near scene of Lehigh Acres crash

Published: Updated:

A stabbing on a normally quiet street is leaving neighbors on edge.

The Lee County Sheriff’s Office responded to a reported stabbing near the scene of a crash on Alabama Road in Lehigh Acres on Tuesday, at around 4:35 a.m.

In addition to multiple LCSO vehicles, several K-9 units, a helicopter and an LCSO drone were spotted investigating the scene near Alabama Road and Gifford Avenue.

The crash and the deputies’ presence led to a severe traffic backup, with multiple cars driving onto the lawns of nearby homes to get around the scene before the road was officially shut down.

LCSO’s incident page lists a stabbing and a “disturbance” at a nearby address on Gifford Avenue.

LCSO have not said whether the crash and the stabbing are related, or if anyone was hurt in the stabbing.

There also has been no word if there is a suspect or if there are suspects on the run or in custody.
