Cudahy police arrest suspect in stabbing incident

Nov. 15, 2011

Cudahy police arrested a 37-year-old man who had fled into a house Tuesday after allegedly stabbing a 26-year-old man in the chest in a residence in the 3700 block of E. Van Norman Ave.

The arrest ended a standoff that had begun around 6 a.m. with a 911 cellphone call about a stabbing, police said.

Melissa Maker, the Cudahy Police Department's public information officer, said in a news release that the victim was found stabbed in the backyard of the residence and was transported to Froedtert Hospital in Wauwatosa. The suspected assailant also was injured in the quarrel that preceded the stabbing and also was transported to a hospital, Maker said. The condition of the victim and the suspect was not released.

Police said the stabbing was not a random act - the victim and suspect knew each other. No one else was injured, police said. A nearby school, Lincoln Elementary School, was placed on lockdown until the suspect was arrested.
