WILMINGTON — An 18-year-old woman was stabbed early Thursday morning at a nightclub near Greenfield Lake; she was then intentionally hit by a vehicle as she was leaving the club, according to the Wilmington Police Department.

“Around 2:30 a.m. Thursday, August 13, Wilmington police received word that an 18-year-old female had arrived at NHRMC with a stab wound,” according to the WPD.

Wilmington Police officers responded and determined the stabbing occurred at an “after hours club,” an unmarked establishment at 1913 Carolina Beach Road that shares a building with a church and independent film organization.

“The victim had been involved in a fight, during which she was stabbed by another female. When she left the club to seek medical treatment, an unknown vehicle accelerated through the parking area and intentionally struck her,” according to police.

WPD spokesperson Jessica Williams clarified later that she was struck while walking away from the club.

She was driven to the hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries. Williams said she couldn’t provide information where the victim was stabbed, as it may interfere with the ongoing case, but emphasized she was in stable condition.

The case is under investigation and the WPD is not releasing further information at this time. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Wilmington Police Department at (910) 343-3609 or use for anonymous tips.
