On 03/18/2010, at about 11:24 P.M. the Collinsville Police responded to 226 S. Clinton to assist EMS in reference to a stabbing victim. Upon arrival the officers met with the 47 year old male victim. The victim was bleeding from a neck wound and he advised the officers that his brother had stabbed him at his brothers residence, located at 308 E. Church.


Officers responded to that residence in an attempt to make contact with the suspect and he refused to come to the door. The officers secured the residence and contacted the Region 8 WMD Special Response Team. The SRT officers used a loud speaker to convince the subject to surrender. The subject came out of his residence and was arrested after a brief struggle. There were no further injuries.
