Stabbing In Waupun


Waupun’s Police Chief says they were very cautious entering a home in the 500 block of West Brown Street where an 18-year-old Randolph man was stabbed early Sunday morning. The man was stabbed in the arm and needed a number of stitches. He was treated at Waupun Memorial Hospital. Police Chief Dale Heeringa says they have had some history with the home in the past few years. He says it is a bunch of very irresponsible people in a residential area causing a disturbance that more or less terrorized the whole neighborhood. Waupun Police teamed up with the Dodge County Sheriff’s SWAT Team to enter the home. He says a flash bang explosive was used and the team forcibly went through the front door of the home. An 18-year-old Waupun man was arrested for the stabbing. Two other Waupun residents were arrested for probation violations. The owner of the home was questioned and released. Heeringa says the folding knife that may have been used in the stabbing, and drugs and drug paraphernalia were found in the home.

Waupun Police took four Waupun residents into custody in connection with the stabbing of an 18-year-old Randolph man early Sunday morning in Waupun. Police say the victim was taken to a local hospital, treated and released. Officers learned there had been a fight involving a number of people from Waupun, Randolph and Markesan. Due to witnesses being uncooperative police had to obtain a search warrant for a home in the 500 block of West Brown Street, the same area where the stabbing occurred. Three men were taken to the Dodge County Jail and are facing charges. An 18-year-old Waupun man is facing recklessly endangering safety, battery, disorderly conduct, and obstruction charges. A 20-year-old Waupun man was arrested on a probation violation. A 37-year-old Waupun woman was arrested for a traffic offense and probation violation. A 44-year-old Waupun man was interviewed and released. Police say they still want to talk to a 19-year-old Waupun man.
