Police beefing up patrols along Belle Isle at night

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -- On Tuesday night, Richmond Police Officers stepped up its patrols along Belle Isle. This, just one night after a 21-year-old man is stabbed nearly 30 times and is recovering in the hospital.

The victim's family member and witnesses of the stabbing tell NBC12, the victim had a punctured lung, went through surgery and is in a neck-brace.

It looked like a scene from a movie: Richmond PD looking from the air and on the ground for a stabbing suspect. So far, no luck in doing that.

This as Anthony McCormick tells us he spent most of the night in the hospital hoping his brother Danny just makes it through.

"He's in a neck brace right now. He doesn't look too good. I tear up when I see him like that. It's not pretty. He's my brother," said Anthony.  

Anthony says his brother was stabbed about 30 times -- all over his body. This, after a fight between strangers turned violent Monday evening.

"I watched them sew up his arm. They didn't let em see his abdomen and back of the neck cuts," Anthony said.  

Friend Ben Parks was on Belle Isle as this all went down. "He was holding himself down in the abdomen and I set my hand on his back. Next thing I know, I'm gushing with blood. I took his shirt off and it was just everywhere."

The violence on the first warm night of the year has police heavily enforcing the rules. We caught two officers driving through the Isle after dark. No one is allowed on Belle Isle after dark or you could get arrested!

With enforcements up -- Anthony is getting ready to spend more time by his brothers bedside.
