Sunday's Saylesville stabbing investigation ongoing

LINCOLN - The weekend stabbing incident following a house party on Woodland Street that sent two Pawtucket men to the hospital is "absolutely an isolated incident," Lincoln Police Chief Brian Sullivan told The Breeze this week.

He said there are no suspects at this time and detectives were still trying to speak with victims, one of whom was still in Rhode Island Hospital as of Tuesday afternoon.

Lincoln Police Capt. Philip Gould said the victims are not cooperating with police. Police have leads, he said, and are not yet sure if the incident is gang-related.

LPD received several 911 calls at approximately 1:55 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 10, Sullivan said, for a reported stabbing in the parking lot of 15 Woodland St., a low-income multi-family complex owned by the Lincoln Housing Authority located across the street from the Saylesville Elementary School playground.

George Siradze, 20, was stabbed three times and found in the back yard of an adjacent house, Gould said, before he was treated by Lincoln Rescue personnel and transported to Rhode Island Hospital in serious condition.

Friends brought the second victim, 21-year-old Xavier McNamara, to Memorial Hospital, Gould said. His injuries were reportedly considered less serious and sustained from a separate altercation following the house party.

Aside from the unidentified resident who hosted the party, it appears everyone involved was from out of town, Sullivan said.
