Jackson County sheriff Steve Rand reports that on Wednesday, October 11 at around 4 p.m., Jackson County 911 began receiving multiple calls regarding a stabbing.
Rand said one caller was calling from inside the city of Jackson, another from Park Road in Summit Township. Police and fire/rescue from the city of Jackson and Summit Township were sent to each location until the exact location of the incident was clear.
Deputies determined the incident, a stabbing, and that it occurred on Ranch Boulevard in Summit Township.
Investigators from the Sheriff’s office determined a 22-year-old Jackson man went to his ex-girlfriend’s home on Ranch Boulevard. The man started an altercation and threatened to harm himself in front of the ex-girlfriend. The 22-year-old suspect was surprised to find a 23-year-old man from Brooklyn at the home.
Rand said the suspect attacked the Brooklyn man with a weapon believed to be a knife or box cutter. The Brooklyn man suffered serious injuries and was taken to Henry Ford Allegiance Hospital by ambulance for treatment. The suspect also sustained minor injuries.
The suspect was treated for his injuries and subsequently arrested for felonious assault. Request for charges have been submitted to Prosecutor Jerry Jarzynka’s office for review. Names are being withheld pending further investigation.
Jackson City Police, Jackson Fire and Summit Fire all assisted on this incident.
