NEWTON, Kan. -- A Newton man was hurt, and another man is in custody following a stabbing early Saturday morning.
It began around 3:30 a.m. when a man pulled a knife and stabbed another man in the abdomen during an argument at a home in the 100 block of Lakeview Drive, Newton Police Chief Jim Daily said.
The victim, 57-year-old Mark McAnulty, was taken to a Newton hospital by private vehicle and was then transported to Wesley Medical Center in Wichita, where he was treated and released.
Following the stabbing, the suspect barricaded himself inside the home. The SWAT team was called to the scene to try to get the suspect to give himself up.
The suspect, 30-year-old Justin Kader refused to leave the home. The SWAT team eventually made entry and located Kader hiding in the rafters in the ceiling.
Kader injured his leg while coming down from the rafters. He was arrested on a charge of aggravated battery.
A neighbor told KAKE News that police had the street blocked off and advised nearby residents to stay in their homes during the standoff, which ended around 7:30 a.m.
