Man Stabbed in Piccolo’s Restaurant


4-20 WORTHINGTON STABBINGSPRINGFIELD (WGGB) – One man is in the hospital this morning after a stabbing at a downtown restaurant.

Springfield Police responded to a call at Piccolo’s Restaurant just after 2:30 this morning. When they arrived, they found a large crowd gathered inside the restaurant. A fight had just broken out. Police cleared the restaurant, and found a man who had been stabbed in the back during the fight.

The victim refused medical attention at the scene, and instead was transported to Baystate Medical Center in a private car.

He is so far refusing to cooperate with police.

Springfield Police are investigating that incident.

    Maybe News40 could contact Mayor Sarno and ask him if he is going to have his people shutdown this restraunt , if this was a bar or nightclub, the padalocks would be already on the doors.

    More civilized people wouldn’t stand around watching, but leave so as not to exacerbate the situation. Sounds like the restaurant is a gangbanger hangout for the nocturnal animals.

    It’s not Piccolo’s; it’s Piccolo. Look at the sign on the awning. This isn’t the first time I’ve seen a spelling or grammatical error in one of your news headlines. Maybe this seems like I’m nitpicking but you guys should consider how Springfield is viewed by people in other cities and what your station is doing to promote that. Do you think news stations in Boston make tons of spelling errors in their headlines? I doubt it. How about when you had that Masco clown as your weatherman? I recall watching your morning show one day and he had to announce the names of people’s dogs. He had a confused look on his face as he said “Akita Emma,” because he was unaware Akita was a dog breed. Do you think jag-offs like this work in news stations in New York City? Doubtful. The first thing you need to do is let go of your incompetent editors and hire someone who knows what they are doing. I’m sure they have fancy degrees from prestigious colleges such as Branford Hall and Salter College, but seriously, I could do their job a hell of a lot better than they could with one eye closed and I’m just a store clerk. The next step toward not embarrassing yourselves would be to avoid hiring “talent” like Masco. The news crew you guys have now is OK, although Madsen is getting a bit past his botox prime. Sometimes when I’m watching your show, I expect to see the skin of his jowels being held up by a clothespin much like the newscaster from The Simpsons. I realize us Appalachian folk will always be held back by not having access to the same money, education, and resources as our coastal brothers and sisters, but that’s no excuse to make us look like idiots by representing us so poorly. It may help to hire outsiders once in a while. I know it’s completely against this area’s culture for anyone to trust people they haven’t known their entire lives, but if more of that was done, new ideas (or should I say “idears”) might just enter our cultural identity and people around the rest of the world wouldn’t think Western Mass was such a fucking joke.
