Details

 A 48-year-old homeless man suffered a stab wound to his torso and another to an arm as he fought with "friend" Saturday afternoon. The victim said they were both "drunk as a skunk" and returning to place beneath a John Nolen Dr. bridge, where the men often sleep. He said they got in an argument over money and it turned physical. He used a backpack to block some stabbing attempts after the suspect pulled a knife. The victim said he was able to push the suspect into the lake and then get to a hospital for stitches. The suspect has not yet been located. There is probable cause to arrest him for first degree reckless endangerment.
