By the time Park Hills Police arrived at the Laundry Basket Laundromat in the 500 block of South St. Joe Drive, the victim had already left the laundromat, and was later found walking along Route O. He was transported by St. Francois County Ambulance to Parkland Health Center and later transferred to Barnes Hospital.

Park Hills Police Chief Richard McFarland said that the victim was reportedly assaulted at a residence in the 400 block of Lewis Street.

“We talked to a suspect, however, the victim is not cooperating in the investigation and he is advising that he doesn’t want to pursue charges at this point,” he said.

McFarland said that the victim later claimed that the stabbing was self-inflicted.
