St. Clair Police are investigating a stabbing that took place in the city limits on Sunday night.

According to information from Chief Bill Hammack, officers were dispatched to 675 Ridge Ave. at 9:39 p.m. to a domestic assault in progress.

Upon arrival, they learned that a 26-year-old man from Union had been involved in an altercation inside the residence and that he had been stabbed 11 times.

The police report stated that the man suffered injuries to his abdomen, chest and back. The victim was transported to Mercy Hospital Washington with life-threatening injuries.

Information from the police department stated the man remains in stable condition and is expected to survive.

His name is not being released by authorities.

Hammack said the investigation revealed that the victim had gone to the Ridge Avenue residence with his 24-year-old girlfriend, who also is from Union.

The man went to the home to confront a 31-year-old man about an alleged altercation that had occurred between the female and the male resident the night before.

A fight ensued in the home, at which time, according to the police report, the Union man was stabbed.

Police arrested the 31-year-old St. Clair man. The department is in the process of submitting a report to the Franklin County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office for review.

His name is not being released pending possible charges.

Earlier Incident

The Ridge Avenue residence was where six individuals were arrested late last month after authorities found heroin and drug paraphernalia in the home.

According to information from the St. Clair Police Department, those arrests stemmed from an incident that took place on the afternoon of Nov. 25 when officers were called to the home in response to a possible drug overdose.

When police arrived, they found the six people inside the residence. They also seized the heroin and drug paraphernalia.

Four of the six people found inside the home had active warrants for their arrests. They were Nancy Hodge, 23, Union; Jacob Poertner, 27, St. Clair; Jacob Shea, 31, St. Clair; and Hannah Filkins, 18, Sullivan.

In addition, a 28-year-old Cedar Hill man and a 33-year-old St. Clair man were arrested at the residence. Their names were withheld pending formal charges.

Charges in that case have been sought through the Franklin County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.
