Man Arrested After Stabbing in Casco Twp

A 23-year-old Mt. Clemens man is in custody following a stabbing in Americana Estates Mobile Home Park in Casco Township last night. According to St. Clair County Sheriff Tim Donnellon, deputies were called to an address on Bart Drive shortly before 11:00 to investigate a stabbing that had just occurred.  When they arrived, they found the victim, who was bleeding profusely, outside a residence on Bart Drive. Deputies were told an unknown assailant had run up to the victim and stabbed him multiple times.  The suspect then ran from the area.

The victim, a 20-year-old man from Casco Township, was transported by Richmond-Lenox EMS to an area hospital, where he was last reported in stable condition.

Deputies interviewed witnesses to the attack and eventually were able to find out the name of the suspect.  Further investigation led deputies to another residence in the park, where they were able to locate and apprehend the suspect, who is currently on parole.

The suspect was transported to the St. Clair County Intervention and Detention Center, where he is expected to face charges including felonious assault and obstructing police.  He is also being held on a parole violation and a misdemeanor warrant out of Macomb County.
