A man was stabbed Sunday night during a fight at an apartment complex across the street from campus, according to Carbondale police.

Police responded to reports of a stabbing about 10:30 p.m. in the 800 block of West Mill Street. A disagreement between two males ages 55 and 65 who reside in the Carbondale Towers led to the stabbing, said Lt. Paul Edwards of the Carbondale Police Department.

Neither of the men are SIU students, Edwards said.


The victim was transported to Carbondale Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, according to police. 

Edwards said the victim suffered minor injuries and the circumstances did not merit an arrest. The case has been sent directly to the state’s attorney’s office, he said.
