STURGIS – An incident at a gas station led to two people going to the hospital and one person being arrested.

Sturgis Police were called to the Meijer Gas Station on South Centreville Road at 11:35 Thursday night for a felonious assault in progress. While driving to the location, officers were advised by St. Joseph County Central Dispatch that the parties involved were armed with a machete and a crow bar.

Officers arrived and found a man who had a stab wound to his right hand and was taken to Sturgis Hospital by Life Care Ambulance. Police learned a second victim was transported to Sturgis Hospital by private vehicle with a stab wound too.

As the investigation continued, officers learned the suspect was still at the gas station and was taken into custody without incident.

The 25 year old suspect is charged with felonious assault less than murder and is currently being held in the St. Joseph County Jail.
