Derrick T. Washburn
There were more people involved in the Grossi Park altercation late Thursday night that led to a 13-year-old's stabbing than just the victim and the suspect, according to documents released this morning by LPD.

According to the Lockport Police Department arrest report of 20-year-old Derrick T. Washburn, 39 Lewis St., two groups of juveniles were at Grossi Park when the argument began. One juvenile grabbed another and friends of the grabber began to strike the person being held. A 13-year-old girl, who was friends with the person being struck began to remove people from her friend when she saw Washburn come up behind her and then felt pain in her back.

The girl told LPD she and her friends began to flee the scene when her back felt wet. “She felt her back and when she put her hand in front of her, she saw it was covered in blood.” She then ran to a South New York Street home for help.

The victim told patrol that Washburn had thrown a pair of knives prior to patrol’s arrival. Patrol located one in a bush on South New York Street. “The suspect stated that was not the knife he threw at the juvenile victim,” according to the report.

Patrol was unable to locate the weapon used in the incident. It is described as a black folding knife with a blue tiger striped handle.

Washburn was charged with first-degree attempted assault, third-degree criminal possession a weapon, first-degree reckless endangerment, tampering with physical evidence, and endangering the welfare of a child over the incident. .

The teenage girl was transported to Eastern Niagara Hospital-Lockport with a non-life threatening injury.

Lockport Police are still looking for information about this crime. Anyone with additional details is asked to contact the police at 433-7700, or use the confidential tip line at  439-6707.
