NORTON SHORES, Mich. (WOOD) - Police in Muskegon County have arrested a man accused of stabbing two other men at a bar earlier this month.
A customer and a bartender were stabbed around 2 a.m. Oct. 20 at Mibar, 2389 W. Sherman Boulevard in Norton Shores. The suspect fled the scene before police arrived.
Witnesses said the suspect had approached the customer on the bar’s patio and later attacked him with a knife, stabbing him three times, police said.
The bartender, Randall Carroll, was then stabbed multiple times when he stepped in to try and break up the fight, according to police.
Both victims were transported to a hospital. Carroll received seven stitches and later released. The customer is still in the hospital, receiving treatment for wounds to his abdomen.
Several Silent Observer tips and other leads helped police identify the suspect, a 30-year-old from Muskegon Township, and obtain sufficient probable cause to request an arrest warrant.
The Muskegon County Prosecutor’s office then authorized a felony warrant for two counts of assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder.
On Oct. 28, officers from the Norton Shores Police Department and Muskegon County Sheriff’s Department acted on a tip and responded to the 4000 block of Evanston Avenue in Egelston Township. That is where the suspect was arrested around 8:50 p.m. His name is being withheld until his arraignment.
