Seymour police investigating stabbing


Seymour police are investigating a stabbing reported early Tuesday morning.

Assistant Police Chief Craig Hayes said the department was called to the Schneck Medical Center emergency room at 3:23 a.m. Tuesday on a report of a stabbing.

When police arrived, they found a 24-year-old Seymour man was being treated for a single stab wound to the lower torso, Hayes said.

When questioned by police, Hayes said the man was uncooperative and would not tell police anything about the incident. The man was taken to Indiana University Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis for treatment and is expected to recover, Hayes said.

Police interviewed a woman who did not know the man but took him to the emergency room, police said. The man did not share any details with the woman, either, Hayes said.

Police believe the stabbing could have occurred in the 300 block of South Vine Street but have not confirmed that, Hayes said.

"We’re still trying to figure that all out," he said. "We want to locate witnesses who may or may not have been there that would know something."

Detective Chris Franklin, Cpl. Jacob Florine and Officer Michael Payne responded to the report.

Anyone who may have information about this incident should call the Seymour Police Department at 812-522-1234. Reports can be made anonymously.
