Police have identified a suspect in the fatal stabbing of a woman in Detroit over the weekend as 26-year-old Darius Calhoun. He is described as black male, approximately 5'11" tall, weighing 250 pounds with a medium brown complexion, brown eyes and last seen wearing a black t-shirt with blue jeans.
Calhoun is wanted in connection with the stabbing, which took place at a home on the city’s east side Saturday while paramedics were at the house helping a victim of cardiac arrest. It is alleged that Calhoun took a woman in her 20s—who has not been identified—into a bedroom and stabbed her to death while medics were in the other room. He then fled the scene on foot before police arrived.
Fox 2 Detroit reports that medics on scene could hear the incident as it happened, but were not armed or protected enough to stop Calhoun, so they had to wait for police. Detroit Fire Union Chief Mike Nevin said paramedics saw the suspect covered in blood and appearing to put a weapon away as he left the house.
Those paramedics reported that they stepped aside as Calhoun left the scene.
“They didn’t know if he had any other weapons with him, and then he took off,” Nevin said.
Both the stabbing victim and the cardiac arrest victim died at the scene. Fox 2 reports Calhoun is related to both of the deceased, but police have not confirmed that.
