Ann Arbor police release more information on Sunday stabbing, assault
Ann Arbor police arrested a 25-year-old South Lyon man after he stabbed a man, sending him to the hospital Sunday morning, a police detective said.
Police are also investigating an assault that took place at a bar near the stabbing at about the same time. They said they appear to be unrelated.
Ann Arbor police Detective Lt. Robert Pfannes said police responded at 1:42 a.m. Sunday to the 200 block of North Main Street to investigate a reported stabbing. Pfannes said the 25-year-old South Lyon man is accused of stabbing a 28-year-old Ypsilanti man after a verbal confrontation turned physical.
Pfannes said the South Lyon man produced a knife during the argument and stabbed the Ypsilanti man.
The South Lyon man was arrested at the scene of the incident before being transported to the hospital to be treated for injuries he suffered in the fight. The Ypsilanti man remained in the hospital Monday morning.
The two men didn’t know each other, Pfannes said.
Pfannes said charges are being sought in the case, but there were no warrants filed in the case Monday morning, according to court records.
Police are also investigating an assault that took place at Live, a bar located at 102 S. First St., shortly before the stabbing.
Pfannes said police were called to investigate the incident at 1:35 a.m. Sunday, after a 41-year-old East Lansing man was assaulted.
The man was sitting at the bar when an unknown man struck him. The assailant was gone by the time police arrived.
The East Lansing man suffered a laceration on his face and required medical attention, Pfannes said.
The assailant is described as a white or possibly mixed race man, 6-feet to 6-feet-2 inches tall, with a muscular build and a crew-cut hair style. He was wearing a dark jacket, Pfannes said.
Anyone with information on these two incidents is encouraged to call the Ann Arbor police anonymous tip line at 734-794-6939 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK UP (773-2587).
