MARINETTE, WI (WTAQ) - Two people from central and northeast Wisconsin were seriously wounded in separate stabbing incidents early on New Year’s Day.
At last word, both men survived.
Marinette Police were called to a home disturbance around 4:45 yesterday morning – and they found a 36-year-old man with multiple stab wounds. He was flown to a Green Bay hospital, and officials said he had life-threatening injuries.
A 22-year-old man was arrested.
Authorities did not immediately say what preceded the incident.
Meanwhile, a 35-year-old Shawano man was in stable condition at a Wausau hospital after he was stabbed in the neck.
Officers were called a little before six on New Year’s morning to a home near Wittenberg. He and a 20-year-old Keshena man went to the house. Sheriff’s deputies said there was an exchange, and the 20-year-old left and later returned when an altercation began.
Officers said the Shawano man was stabbed with an “edged weapon,” and the Keshena man was arrested on a possible charge of attempted homicide.
Investigators are still looking into both incidents.
