A Warsaw man is behind bars for allegedly stabbing his roommate Monday, according to a news release from the Kosciusko County Sheriff's Department.
Deputies from the department responded to a 911 call of a stabbing at 4:32 p.m. Monday at the Johnson Mobile Home Park, 3529 W. Kosciusko County Road 100S, Warsaw, where a verbal confrontation developed between the suspect, Scott R. Blevins, 39, and his wife in the presence of a roommate. Blevins allegedly shoved his wife and attempted to slice the tires of his vehicle so she could not leave.
Blevins' roommate intervened and was allegedly stabbed by Blevins in the torso area. The victim was treated at the scene by medics, but he refused to go to the hospital.
Deputies searched for Blevins and took him into custody without incident. They also transported Blevins to the hospital for medical clearance before taking him to the jail.
Blevins faces preliminary charges of felony battery with a deadly weapon, criminal mischief and possession of paraphernalia. He is being held on a $10,250 bond.
