A Butler man is accused of stabbing another man five times with a knife during an altercation early Monday morning at the home where they live, authorities said.
City police arrested 46-year-old Scott M. Bolte on a felony assault charge. He is in the Butler County Prison on $10,000 bail.
Injured was Alexander Shelatree, 25, who was treated at Butler Memorial Hospital for non-life threatening stab wounds to arm, chest and leg. His condition was not immediately known.
Police said they were called for the stabbing at 1:07 a.m. at a house on the 200 block of West Diamond Street. Officers got there and found Bolte on the street with a folding knife closed in his hand.
He admitted that he stabbed someone inside the home, according to court documents. He turned over the knife.
