BREAKING NEWS: Pittsburgh police make arrest in South Side bicyclist stabbing

From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

Pittsburgh police have called a press conference to announce the arrest of a man charged with stabbing 25-year-old South Side bicyclist Colin Albright.

Pittsburgh police have charged a West Mifflin man in the stabbing last month of 25-year-old South Side bicyclist Colin Albright.

Anthony Scholl, 21, was already in the Allegheny County Jail accused of setting his parents’ house in West Homestead on fire, Pittsburgh police said.

Investigators took possession Wednesday of Mr. Scholl’s car to search it for evidence connected to the attack on Mr. Albright, police said.

A press conference is scheduled for 3 p.m. to discuss the arrest further.

The attack occurred Sept. 5 shortly before 11 p.m. as Mr. Albright carried his bicycle up steps on the South Side Slopes.

Mr. Albright was stabbed repeatedly in the neck. Several of the wounds would have been fatal had they been a millimeter or two deeper or to the side.

He was released from the hospital Sept. 10.

At the time of the attack he said his assailant gave no reason for stabbing him, but he believed he had earlier biked across an intersection in front of the man’s car just as the light changed, and guessed that the man might have believed Mr. Albright cut him off.
