One male victim has suffered several lacerations in what police are calling a stabbing.
At 11:56 a.m. members of the Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department were called to respond to a possible stabbing at Lot 135, Suburban Acres Mobile Home Park, Warsaw.
Upon arrival to the scene, police located the stabbing victim, 39 year-old James Fredrick Kosher. Kosher had suffered a non life-threatening laceration to his hand/wrist area and a second cut to his arm. Kosher was transported to Kosciusko Community Hospital in a stable condition for treatment of his wounds.
According to Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department Sgt. Chad Hill, police identified the individual who committed the stabbing as 50 year-old, Todd Douglas Warren, a resident of Lot 135 and uncle to Kosher.
According to Hill, upon arrival to the scene investigators were told varying accounts of what had occurred by both Warren
and Kosher. Detectives state that Warren and Kosher had entered into a verbal argument earlier in the morning that ensued into a physical altercation.
The resident of Lot 135, where the stabbing occurred, said the victim was trying to break into his trailer to rob him so he protected himself. Hill said it did not appear that the stabbing had just occurred, and could have possibly taken place hours earlier. Initial interviews provided by Warren state that he had been struck by Kosher and used a knife to defend himself.
The investigation is currently on-going by K.C.S.D. deputies and detectives. Information relative to the case may be forwarded to the Kosciusko County Prosecutor’s Office for review of potential charges at the conclusion of the officers’ investigation
