Fight Over Taking Too Long to Get Ready for Club Leads to Stabbing Inside Center City Hotel: Police

An argument between two friends over taking too long to get ready to go out led to a stabbing inside a Center City hotel, according to police.

Police responded to the Embassy Suites on 1776 Ben Franklin Parkway Saturday around 1 a.m. for a reported stabbing. When they arrived they were met by a 24-year-old man who claimed he had been stabbed by his friend, 24-year-old Tyress Salmon.

The man told police he and Salmon began arguing earlier over not getting ready fast enough to go out to the club. The argument turned physical and Salmon then took out a razor and cut the victim across the neck, causing a laceration, police said.

The victim was taken to Hahnemann Hospital and is currently in stable condition. Salmon, who is from the Bronx, New York, was arrested and charged with attempted criminal homicide, aggravated assault, simple assault and other related offenses.
