- Updated article: Police seek charges against 2 men in drug-related stabbing
A 47-year-old Ypsilanti man was stabbed early Tuesday morning after two men forced their way into his home in the 200 block of North Hamilton Street, police said.
The assailants, believed to be a 47-year-old and 28-year-old, both of Ypsilanti, kicked in the victim's door about 3:25 a.m., police said in a news release. The victim struggled with them and was stabbed in the left shoulder with a small folding knife, police said.
Afterward, the suspects left on foot, and friends of the victim took him to an area hospital, where police interviewed him. Officers went to the area and searched for the suspects but could not find them.
Police said they suspect an argument over drugs may have caused the confrontation. They continue to investigate. Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Sgt. Tom Eberts at 734-482-9878 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAKUP (773-2587).
