Kevin Miskell was arraigned on one charge each of assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder and assault with a dangerous weapon Saturday, Detective Lt. Robert Pfannes said Monday.
Miskell is charged with stabbing a 29-year-old Ann Arbor man with an unknown object at 8:30 p.m. Thursday in the 1300 block of Wisteria Drive.
Pfannes said it’s still unknown what caused the confrontation.
“The victim and assailant do not appear to have known each other before the assault,” Pfannes said, “and police do not believe any illegal activity or previous rancor existed between the two.”
Pfannes said Miskell was arrested near the scene of the stabbing Thursday and is lodged at the Washtenaw County Jail on a 10 percent of $100,000 bond. He will be in court for a preliminary exam at 8:30 a.m. March 14, Pfannes said.
According to police, the two men began fighting outside their apartment building. The fight moved inside one of the buildings before ending up outside again. It wasn’t until after the fight the 29-year-old man realized he’d been stabbed.
The man suffered injuries to his abdomen and leg. Pfannes said he’s been released from the University of Michigan Hospital, where he was taken for treatment.
