Police Investigating Stabbings

Lansing Police are investigating a case of multiple stabbings that happened at about midnight Sunday on the 900 block of Holten.

Lt. Mike Yankowski says the suspect, a 20-year-old Hispanic Lansing resident, was kicked out of a Super Bowl party because he was unruly after drinking too much.

He returned to the house about 20 to 30 minutes later with some friends, and said he wanted to fight. A fight ensued with about 15 to 20 people in front of the house.

Three people were stabbed, all Lansing residents:
-a 40-year-old white male, who received multiple wounds.
-a 25-year-old Hispanic male, who also received multiple stab wounds.
-a 40-year old male, one wound in the abdomen.

The victims are all in the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Three or 4 other people received injuries from the fight, but all refused treatment. A gun may have been present in the fight, but it doesn't sound like it was discharged.

Yankowski says the first two stabbings apparently were caused by the suspect, who used a pocket knife. The third man says he's not sure how he got stabbed or who did it.

The suspect was arrested on two counts of assault with intent to commit murder. He is in custody and his case should be reviewed by the prosecutor sometime Monday.

The case is still being investigated. Anyone who witnessed the fight should call Det. Sgt. Sue Bayliss, 483-4600.

    And the men that came wit him weren't just his friends they were his Brother and his Step dad. They said his step dad got stabbed okay why would his step son stab him when he was there to help him???? Hmmm i think that's something to think about. Sergio is a big guy tall and very buff. He can fight now if 20 people claim that they were trying to stop him well why does Sergio have his face broken his injuries are very bad he got it worse than the rest of them! So of course they jumped him it's an unfair fight. Everything is unfair he deserves to have his rights.

    Well first off that's not what happened they jumped him in the basement he tried to leave but he couldnt find his car keys so when he left outside they jumped him again. He ran down the street called his brother and say im hurt they came and they started the fight. Now they broke all one side if his face dont you think he couldnt move? He was hurt. And those guys were his blood cousins. Now how immature is that? I know that boy he is the sweetest person in the world he wouldnt stab no one. He was jumped by almost 20 people come one now. And another thing he didnt stab nobody. They said what they believe to be is a pockey knife how do they know everyone at that party was drunk! So how would they know those people who jumped him are the ones that are gun crazy and knife crazy. They got the wrong guy. he is innocent!

    the story that the media has given is False. If you weren't there your opinion means nothing. The media gave a one sided story. He is a good man who will fight for his life. By the way, he never left ( they wouldn't let him} you can reply against this comment and it will only be coming from a person who believes a one sided story or covering up for the guilty side. THE TRUTH! TAKE IT OR KICK ROCKS!!

    ALL I GOT TO SAY IS GOD WILL PUNISH ALL THOSE IGNORANT MALES WHO JUMPED HIM AND BEAT HIM TO THE POINT WHERE HIS WHOLE FACE WAS SWOLLEN AND COUNLDN'T EVEN MOVE HIS EYE...IF I WAS GETTING BEATEN TO THE POINT WHERE I COULDN'T SEE AND WAS SCARED FOR MY LIFE I WOULD DO WHATEVER WAS NECASSARY TO DEFEND MYSELF...MY PRAYERS ARE WITH HIM AND HIS FAMILY!! GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY!!

    I am pretty sure if a guy is kicked out of a party and returns with "friends" and get's into a fight and pulls a pocket knife out and stabs some people......thats not self defense!!!!

    from what i hear, a pocket knife was used,,that don't really tell me that it was intentional,,possibly self defense,,the story on the news says that the 20 yr old suspect was unruly and was asked to leave,,,maybe something more happened to him before he left.
