SHAMOKIN — A Shamokin man arrived at the city police station Tuesday morning, claiming he was stabbed in the chest, but details surrounding the incident remain sketchy.

Andrew Britton reportedly was driven by another person to the police station at 9:37 a.m. and told Patrolmen Shane Mowery and William Zalinski he had been stabbed earlier in the morning. The officers said Britton, who had a slash mark across his chest, didn’t reveal any other information about the stabbing.

Police said Britton was not bleeding when he came to the station. Emergency medical personnel from AREA Services were summoned to treat Britton at the scene and transported him to Geisinger-Shamokin Area Community Hospital.

Britton underwent emergency room treatment before being released.

At 1:30 a.m. Tuesday, police were summoned to talk with Britton in the 100 block of East Lincoln Street regarding a disturbance. Police said that incident was deemed minor and didn’t involve a stabbing.
