Liberal police have located a suspect believed to have stabbed a 29-year-old male Saturday night.

In a press release, Capt. Pat McClurg with the Liberal Police Department said officers responded to Southwest Medical Center a little after 8:30 Saturday night regarding a victim being stabbed.

“The victim, a 29-year-old male, stated the attack occurred at his residence in the 700 block of North Grant,” he said. “He said he was arguing with his roommate, a 21-year-old male, when his roommate produced a knife and attacked him.”

McClurg said the victim sustained at least one stab wound and numerous defensive wounds.

“He was admitted to Southwest Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries,” he said.

McClurg said investigators responded to the residence where the attack occurred and identified several witnesses.

“The evidence at the scene and the witness statements were consistent with the victim’s account,” he said.

The suspect, McClurg said, was located at a residence in the 200 block of West Sixth Street.

“He was taken into custody without incident,” he said. “He was booked into Seward County Jail for attempted first degree murder, criminal threat and criminal damage to property.”

McClurg said the suspect was also arrested on an unrelated warrant for parole violation. An affidavit was forwarded to the Seward County Attorney’s office seeking formal charges.

The investigation of the incident is ongoing.
