GREENVILLE – A Grand Rapids man is in jail after allegedly stabbing a local man and attempting to stab another local man Friday night in Greenville.

According to Greenville Department of Public Safety Director Mike Pousak, the incident began at a party at River’s Edge Townhouses on Hillcrest Street in Greenville.

There was a party and it got out of hand,” Pousak said. “It got heated. There was an argument.”

Around 11 p.m., the Grand Rapids man allegedly chased one man on foot to Greenville West Drive, where he allegedly stabbed the man in the side.

The Grand Rapids man then allegedly tried to chase and stab another man.

“The other man was not stabbed,” Pousak said. “He was just running for his life.”

The man who was stabbed was taken to Spectrum Health United Hospital in Greenville. He was later transferred to a Grand Rapids hospital.

“The injury didn’t appear to be life-threatening,” Pousak said.

The Grand Rapids man was arrested by Greenville police and taken to the Montcalm County Jail in Stanton, where he remains. He is facing charges of attempted murder and felonious assault when he is arraigned next week.

Pousak said alcohol may have been a factor in the incident.

More information will be available after the Grand Rapids man is officially arraigned and charged in 64B District Court in Stanton next week.
