A man was hospitalized after a stabbing in Middleton on Friday night, and the suspect is in custody, according to the Middleton Police Department.
Officers were called to a reported disturbance in a parking lot at 2128 Allen Blvd. around 10:10 p.m., the police department said in a statement. The stabbing victim, who is in his 30s, was found in the parking lot with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. He was in stable condition.
The stabbing was an "isolated incident," according to the statement, and there is no threat to the community.
Middleton Police Capt. Travis Kakuske identified the suspect in an update Saturday night as Eddie Monroe, 35, of Madison. Monroe was arrested on a tentative charge of second-degree recklessly endangering safety and booked into the Dane County Jail.
Kakuske said witnesses described the vehicle in which Monroe left the scene. A few minutes after the stabbing, a town of Madison police officer saw the suspect vehicle and initiated a traffic stop. Evidence from the scene tied Monroe, the only person in the vehicle, to the incident.
The investigation is ongoing, and anyone with related information is asked to contact the Middleton Police Department at 608-824-7300, Madison Area Crime Stoppers at 608-266-6014 or on the web at P3tips.com. Those who submit tips to crime stoppers can remain anonymous and also receive up to $1,000 in cash rewards for information that leads to an arrest.
