ADA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) - A teenager recently released from jail is back behind bars after allegedly stabbing another teen multiple times in Ada Wednesday.
An ambulance transported the male victim to a Grand Rapids hospital for treatment of serious injuries. His condition is unknown.
Samuel Robert King, 17, was arrested in connection to the stabbing, police and jail records show.
Around 3:55 p.m. Wednesday, emergency responders were called to a house in a neighborhood near Ada Drive and Spaulding Avenue SE, where the injured teen was found in a Jeep.
"An ambulance was here and they were working on someone in the back seat, which there was a lot of blood from what we could see," neighbor Terri Stevens told 24 Hour News 8.
Authorities said the actual stabbing happened at a residence in the 6000 block of Witherbee Drive SE. That is King's residence. The victim was a guest and no adults were there at the time.
There was an altercation of some sort between the two teens, the cause of which is not yet known, resulting in the victim being stabbed.
The victim then got into a Jeep and was driven away. The Jeep's driver pulled into the driveway of a home in the 5200 block of Ada Drive near Spaulding Avenue, about a mile and a half away from the Witherbee Drive residence.
"It was just a random address where they wanted to stop to get some help as soon as they could," Kent County Sheriff's Lt. Jeff DeVries said.
The violence is unusual for the neighborhood, police said.
"This is a quiet neighborhood. We don't expect to have things like this happen here, but obviously, it did," DeVries said.
The victim is a junior at Forest Hills Northern High School and on the football team, his coach told 24 Hour News 8. The teen underwent surgery at the hospital Wednesday, the coach said.
The victim's relationship to the suspect is not yet known.
The weapon used in the stabbing had not been recovered Wednesday afternoon.
The case will be forwarded to the Kent County Prosecutor's Office to determine what, if any, charges are appropriate.
King pleaded guilty to felony aggravated stalking in June in connection to a separate incident. The original charge in April was felony assault. He was sentenced to 180 days jail and five years probation, Michigan State Police records show.
King is in the son of Bob King, an adjunct professor at Cornerstone University and the campus pastor at Ada Bible Church's Knapp Street Campus.
