A 26-year-old Red Creek man is facing assault charges over an alleged stabbing at a party. Investigators say Kurtis Matteson got into a fight with 23-year-old Nicholas Perry, also of Red Creek, at a party Tuesday night.
Matteson allegedly stabbed Perry in the abdomen, then tossed the knife over the bridge and into Red Creek Pond. Perry underwent surgery this week, and was released from the hospital on Thursday.
Matteson has been charged with assault. The knife has not been found.
