I live in the complex where the man was stabbed

I didn't hear anything the TV was so loud I went outside to get some fresh air woman was crying I saw a police officer my neighbor upstairs told me to get shoes on I looked down and realized I'm walking in blood my other neighbor was the woman who patched him up I heard his name was Carrie the man who got stabbed now that I know he's still at large I refuse to leave my apartment alone they put yellow tape outside my door and all around samples and pictures were taken my father stopped by five cops until he finally convinced them to let him in to see me

That is the suspect

I know both of the men involved and know for a fact that is the suspects facebook profile

Robert Allen is a common name, so I need confirmation

from official sources before posting anyone's image.  The site you link to only has a first and last name.  But even when there is a middle name, it could be a father/son/grandfather with same name in a family, so we always have to be 100% certain before suggesting someone may be a criminal.


No Photo Available

I just looked up the incident on ( ) and they don't have a photo available. A lot of people fit the general description, so this could be a difficult person to find.

Mug shot?

A picture of the suspect would be helpful.


I have a photo
