April 21, 2016

LYON TWP., MI - Shortly after 8pm Tuesday evening, deputies and the Lyon Township Fire Department responded to the 100 block of Manistee Street in the Kensington Mobile Home Park on a report that a person had been stabbed. While en route, deputies were informed that the victim had been stabbed several times with a knife and that the suspect had fled the scene.

The victim and the suspect are reportedly friends and they had been drinking alcoholic beverages together during the evening. An argument ensued that led to a fist fight which eventually escalated to the use of the knife.

Deputies arrived and secured the scene. The suspect had fled the scene prior to their arrival. The Lyon Township Fire department rendered medical treatment to the victim, a 34 year-old male, and after he was stabilized he was transported to Botsford Hospital where he is listed in stable condition.

Deputies searched the Park for the suspect with negative results. A K-9 unit responded to the scene to assist Deputies with their search but with negative results. The OCSO Fugitive Apprehension Team (FAT) was contacted for additional assistance in locating the responsible.

Detectives from the OCSO Fugitive Apprehension Team were able to apprehend the suspect, a 34 year-old man from Linden, early this morning in Lyon Twp. and was lodged OCJ pending charges.
