Seymour man hospitalized after stabbing


A 25-year-old Seymour man remained hospitalized Wednesday after sustaining stab wounds Tuesday evening at a home on the city’s southwest side.

Police have not identified the victim or others involved, but Seymour officers were called to a home in the 2200 block of Mulberry Street at 7:20 p.m. Tuesday on a report of the stabbing.

The home is located in the Snyde Acres subdivision off Schleter Road on the city’s far west side.

When officers arrived, they found a man with a single stab wound to the lower back, Assistant Police Chief Craig Hayes said.

The man was taken to Schneck Medical Center in Seymour before being transferred to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis.

His condition was not available at press time, but Hayes described the man’s injuries as non-life-threatening.

He said no one has been arrested in the incident, but police continue to investigate, and charges are possible.

“We’re waiting to see how everything unfolds and what our next move will be,” he said.

Officer Mike Henley and Detective Sgt. C.J. Foster are leading the investigation of the incident, initially investigated by Sgt. Brandon White.
