Dubuque Stabbing

By: News Release
Jan 31st, 2018

On 01/29/18 at around 3:38 PM the Dubuque Police Department responded to the Finley Hospital ER for a report of a subject that had been stabbed. Officers identified the subject as 30-year-old Eric E. Tillis of Dubuque. Tillis had several stab wounds but none appeared life threatening. Our officers could not locate the crime scene after checking several areas and it is unknown at this time where Tillis was assaulted. Tillis was not cooperative with the officers at the hospital which hindered the initial investigation. However, the investigation is ongoing and we are still pursuing leads. We believe this incident resulted from a disturbance between parties that knew each other and this was not a random act.

If you have any information on this incident or others, please call the Dubuque Police Department at 563-589-4415 or Crime Stoppers at 800-747-0117 or 563-588-0714 (if the information leads to an arrest, the caller is eligible for a cash reward of up to $2,000).
