Monroe Street stabbing investigation continues, Ann Arbor police say

By Lee Higgins

Ann Arbor police continue to investigate a stabbing earlier this month on Monroe Street that left a man seriously injured, Det. Dave Monroe said.

A 19-year-old Ann Arbor Township man was stabbed roughly six times at about 1:30 a.m. April 10 by another man during a fight in the 700 block of Monroe Street, police said.

The incident that occurred not far from University of Michigan's South Quad residence hall, began as two men started vandalizing a car in a driveway, Monroe said. About five men yelled at them, police said. The two then got into a black car, believed to be a Ford Fusion, Monroe said.

Shortly after, Monroe said, a man got out of the passenger side of the car and fought with one of the five men, stabbing him repeatedly, mostly in the upper body. The victim, whose injuries included a punctured lung, has been released from the hospital and is recovering, Monroe said.

The man responsible for the stabbing was described as white, between 5 feet, 7 inches and 5 feet, 10 inches tall and has a medium build and short hair, Monroe said.
