Ann Arbor man in intensive care after being stabbed Sunday

By Kyle Feldscher

Police released more information on the stabbing incident that sent a 22-year-old Ann Arbor man Sunday morning to intensive care, where he remained more than 24 hours later.

Ann Arbor police Lt. Renee Bush said police responded at 3:50 a.m. Sunday to the BP gas station at William and Main streets for a call about an injured man who had reported being stabbed. Bush said the man was stabbed in the hallway of an apartment building in the 400 block of South First Street before walking to the gas station and asking for help.

Detective Bill Stanford said not much is known about the incident at this point and police are actively investigating.

“It’s really early in the investigation,” he said.

A clerk at the gas station told police the man had come in while holding his stomach, asking for help. When police got to the scene, the man was unable to answer questions about the incident due to the intense amount of pain he was experiencing, Bush said.

The 22-year-old lost consciousness for a short period of time but was able to tell police his name and directed them to the apartment building. He was immediately taken into surgery Sunday and was still in intensive care as of Monday morning, Stanford said.

Bush said police canvassed the neighborhood and were unable to glean any more information from neighbors.

Anyone with any information on this incident is encouraged to call the Ann Arbor police anonymous tip line at 734-794-6939 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800 SPEAK UP (773-2587)

I'm sorry to learn that this man's condition is so serious. I hope he has a quick recovery and that the police catch the assailant soon. I notice there are none of the usual comments about the need for added police protection. I wonder myself if having an officer every 100 feet could prevent crimes like this one. Or would having an officer in each apartment building hallway would be enough? I'm almost sure that some would prefer our crime-fighting mayor provide them with their own personal AAPD officer- judging from previous comments. Maybe if we could get U of M President Coleman to take over: she could ban smoking, ban all weapons including knives, forks and spoons and enforce a dress code in that neighborhood - plus make everyone in that neighborhood wear padded boxing gloves. She makes more than the mayor, doesn't she? So it's probable we should elect her as our crime fighting mayor (with bonuses and income from every possible external source just like she's getting as president at U of M). But the bans, the bans, the bans are the key to success in every crime fighting strategy, right? Banning Annie to the rescue!
