The woman stabbed in the leg during a domestic dispute Tuesday in Superior Township is expected to recover from her non-life-threatening injuries.
Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Geoffrey Fox said the 18-year-old woman will be OK, but he wasn’t sure if she was still in the hospital Wednesday afternoon. Sheriff’s office officials said Tuesday she suffered a “significant” leg wound during the incident.
A 23-year-old Superior Township man is in custody for allegedly stabbing the woman. Fox said it appears the two were having an argument that got physical prior to the stabbing.
The specifics of the incident are still being worked out in interviews and investigation, Fox said.
Deputies responded just before noon Tuesday to the 8700 block of MacArthur Boulevard after the stabbing was reported. Neighbors said they saw the woman sitting on the porch of the townhouse in a pool of blood.
Fox said no formal charges would come against the 23-year-old man Wednesday. The man can be held in the Washtenaw County Jail for 48 hours before he has to be arraigned on charges, or else he will be freed.
