9 / 3 Sheriff Deputies Respond to Stabbing

Deputies with the Washington County Sheriff’s Department had a busy holiday weekend as Lieutenant Martin Schulteis informed WBKV News of six criminal incidents happening between Friday and early Monday morning.  On Monday evening the owner of Uncle Johnny’s Bar on County Trunk Q had kicked a man out of the bar for acting odd and making other customers feel uncomfortable.  According to the incident report, at two am the suspect returned to the bar and confronted four individuals that were leaving the bar.  The four people informed the male suspect that they did not want any problems and began to walk away. The suspect then went around the other side of the bar and jumped from the bushes with a knife stabbing one of the individuals.  The victim, a 27 year old Village of Richfield man, suffered a superficial cut to his abdomen and refused emergency medical transportation. Instead He was transported by a family member. The suspect ended up getting hit several times by the four customers before he fled on foot.  The Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department responded to assist along with their K9.  They temporarily tracked the suspect from the crime scene but lost the track. Lieutenant Schulteis said at this point the suspect has not been identified and an active investigation into the incident continues. Lieutenant Schulteis is also reporting an accident early Monday morning in the Village of Newburg. Shortly after two am, A 23 year old man from the Village of Newburg rolled his vehicle at Highway 33 and Monroe Avenue and suffered minor lacerations. The vehicle sheered off a WE Energies power pole. He was not wearing his seat belt at the time. Highway 33 needed to be closed for a short duration due to wires crossing the roadway.  The man was transported by EMS to an area hospital. He was later arrested for OWI.
