Details

A 26-year old Madison man showed up at a hospital Monday morning with minor stabs wounds to an arm and leg. Police were notified, and he told officers he was injured during a fight on State St. just before 2:00 a.m. - also on Monday.

The victim said he got into a dispute with a man he had befriended and drank with that night. He said they were outside, in the 600 block of State, when the man pulled a knife and began swinging it. The victim did not believe his wounds to be serious and did not contact responding officers.

They were called around the time of the altercation, after an uninvolved witness called 911. The concerned citizen did not see anyone get stabbed, but had seen a disturbance, and realized there was a man armed with a knife. Police found it in the street, and chased down a 28-year old man who allegedly dropped it. He was arrested for disorderly conduct while armed and resisting arrest.

He is now a suspect in the stabbing, now that a victim has come foun
