MOUNT PLEASANT, WI – A 20-year-old man was arrested after he stabbed another man and jumped out a second-story window at a residence in the 1700 block of Northeast Frontage Road.
Anthony M. Brown, of Mount Pleasant, was arrested by the Mount Pleasant Police Department on suspicion of substantial battery, burglary, resisting and obstructing, and disorderly conduct, according to a press release by the department.
The victim’s brother called the Racine County Joint Dispatch Center at 3:32 a.m. Friday saying that his brother had been stabbed by an unknown person.
Officers from the Mount Pleasant Police Department, deputies from the Racine County Sheriff’s Department, and rescue personnel from the South Shore Fire Department responded to the call.
Law enforcement officials attempted to make contact with people inside the home. Brown was seen walking on the roof, but he refused to cooperate with the police. They then shifted their focus on getting the man who was stabbed out of the residence.
“Eventually the male victim, 39 of Mount Pleasant exited,” the press release reads. “The victim had obvious physical injuries and was quickly attended to by rescue. He was transported to the Ascension emergency room where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries.”
As law enforcement officials tried to clear the home, they discovered that Brown had jumped from a second-story window. He was later found hiding in a field just north of the home and taken into custody. Brown, who had an active warrant for his arrest from probation and parole, is being held at the Racine County Jail.
