Corey Cole, 25, of Wyoming, Mich., was charged in 64B District Court in Stanton with attempted murder and felonious assault.

According to Greenville Department of Public Safety Director Mike Pousak, officers responded to a fight in progress around 11 p.m. Friday at River’s Edge Townhouses in the 700 block of Hillcrest Street in Greenville.

“There was a party and it got out of hand,” Pousak said. “Alcohol was involved. Things got heated. There was an argument. While officers were en route, they kept getting updates from Central Dispatch that people were fleeing.”

Cole allegedly chased a 27-year-old Greenville man on foot to Greenville West Drive, where he allegedly stabbed the man in the side.
Cole then allegedly chased and tried stabbing a 31-year-old Greenville woman (not a man, as was previously reported). She was able to escape without being harmed.

The Greenville 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

Cole was arrested by Greenville police and taken to the Montcalm County Jail in Stanton, where he remains.
