A good samaritan was stabbed while trying to help a Klamath Falls shopkeeper during an apparent armed robbery this morning...the incident happened just across the street from the Klamath County Courthouse.
It all happened just after 11 this morning, when 2 suspects entered 'Frames and More' at 3rd and Main.
Daniela Sonnino of KLAD radio says that a shopkeeper and a man that tried to help her were both stabbed in the incident...
"She was working in the frame shop, and two people came in, I guess a guy in black that's in one of the police cars - and a gal in a red dress - and they tried to rob her, with a knife and a pair of scissors."
Lieutenant Rob Dentinger of the Klamath Falls Police Department says that police are still trying to piece together just what happened...
"It appears that it was an armed robbery attempt. It appears that the tenant put up a fight, and a bystander helped out."
Off-duty Bonanza EMT Ed Freitag was one of the first responders...
"Put paper towels, put pressure on his head, make sure the bleeding is stopped until paramedics arrive. Then, all I see is cops trying to take down two suspects, two people on the far side of the street."
19 year old suspect Dylan Botle was taken into custody by police.
The female suspect has been identified as 18 year old Megan Steward.
The injuries suffered by the shopkeeper and bystander aren't believed to be life-threatening.
