A man involved in a downtown fight early this morning escaped from two assailants after pulling a knife and stabbing them in the legs, the Greenville Police Department reported.

Police were notified about a fight at Fifth and Reade streets shortly before 1 a.m., the department reported. Additional staff were in place downtown because Tuesday was the last day of class at East Carolina University, so officers were able to respond to the scene quickly.

Officers discovered Matthew Scott McLamb, 22, of Clarkson, Ky., and Nicholas John Couch, 21, of Greensboro, with apparent knife wounds to their legs, a news release said.

A witness reported a third man, Justin Michael Ingram, 20, of Laurel Hill, ran north on Reade Street. Officers located Ingram a short time later near the Town Common. He, McLamb and Couch were all transported to Vidant Medical Center for treatment for non-life-threatening injuries.

A preliminary investigation and review of area security cameras revealed that Ingram was involved in an altercation as he exited Pantana Bob’s, 513 Cotanche St., which led to the stabbing, the police department reported.

Ingram walked from Contanche toward Reade Street after the initial altercation, police reported. McLamb and Couch followed Ingram to the parking lot shared by Sup Dogs and The Stop Shop. McLamb and Couch confronted Ingram, and repeatedly assaulted him while he was on the ground.

At some point during the struggle, a knife was produced and McLamb and Couch both suffered cuts, police reported. Ingram was eventually able to break free and ran toward the Town Common.

Records from East Carolina University ‘s registrar indicate that none of the three currently are students.

McLamb’s personal information did not match any student currently enrolled, ECU reported. Couch also is a former student. He was enrolled from the fall 2015–fall 2017.

Ingram is a former student, enrolled from spring 2017 through Wednesday. Officials would not elaborate on the timing of his separation from the university.

No arrests are pending at this time. The case remains under investigation.
