A caller to the Valley News was concerned by the presence of at least one ambulance and several police cars next to the construction site on Route 12A in West Lebanon this morning. I figured if one person is wondering while driving by on the busy roadway, there are probably more people wondering, so here’s what I found after I walked over to check it out:
Lebanon police had responded to an altercation that appeared to have happened in the Burger King parking lot (next door to the former Pizza Hut, where a Starbucks and Aspen Dental are going in), the lieutenant on scene told me. No accident at the construction site.
UPDATE: While things were all good at the Starbucks, not so in the alleged altercation, which police said was a stabbing. A man suffered non-life threatening injuries and refused treatment at the scene. See the news release from Lebanon police below.
