Stabbing In Westport Sends One To Hospital

The year 2010 is continuing on a violent path after an alleged stabbing in Westport Tuesday evening sent one man to the hospital.

According to Westport Police Chief Todd Hampton, emergency responders were alerted to a stabbing at 107 S. Poplar St. shortly after 5 p.m. Hampton did not offer details on the incident and noted his department is working with the Indiana State Police to find out what happened inside the house at the intersection of Sycamore and Poplar. Although he did not release the names, Hampton said one man was sent to Decatur County Memorial Hospital with a stab wound from what appeared to be a knife, but investigators are still trying to determine the specific weapon used. One person was being detained, but Hampton declined to reveal his identity as well.

According to a neighbor close to the family, the residence was a rental. He said he believed the mother’s boyfriend and her son got into an argument when the son stabbed the man. He noted there has been “bad blood between them” for quite some time.

Hampton noted he and his department will work with the ISP. There was no word on the condition of the victim at press time.

In addition to ISP, the Decatur County Sheriff’s Department, Decatur County EMS and Westport Volunteer Fire Department assisted at the scene.
