CLINTON TOWNSHIP — A man was stabbed around 9 p.m. Sept. 6, in the parking lot of Great Baraboo Brewing Company, 35905 Utica Road in Clinton Township.

Clinton Township Police Capt. Richard Maierle said police were dispatched and found a 23-year-old Troy man with multiple stab wounds. Great Baraboo employees were holding towels on the victim’s wounds to prevent further bleeding.

Maierle said the victim was stabbed in the lot, walked near the entrance of the establishment and collapsed. It’s unclear whether an employee or a customer called police. The victim was conscious enough to tell officers who allegedly stabbed him, according to Maierle. The 30-year-old suspect hails from Clinton Township and police believe him to be an acquaintance of the victim. The suspect was arrested shortly after at his home nearby.

Police are unaware of any witnesses who saw the stabbing. No weapon was immediately located. Also, there was no indication either of the men were intoxicated when the stabbing occurred.

An alleged dispute caused the stabbing, according to Maierle.

The victim is currently in critical condition at a local hospital.

Clinton Township Police planned to request a warrant Sept. 8 from the Macomb County Prosecutor’s Office. The victim and suspects names were not available at press time.
