HUNTINGBURG — An early morning report Saturday about a stab wound resulted in the arrest of two minors on alcohol-related charges.
The Huntingburg Police Department was called to Memorial Hospital’s emergency room at 4:30 a.m. Saturday in regard to a patient there with a stab wound to his neck.
The patient, Pedro D. Francisco Pedro, 31, had sustained a non-life threatening wound and was transferred to St. Mary’s Medical Center for treatment, according to authorities. The victim said he was stabbed at 906 S. Cherry St. by his younger brother before being brought to the emergency room by private vehicle. The victim also said he did not want to press charges.
Police went to the South Cherry Street home, spoke with 20-year-old Angel D. Pedro and 18-year-old Juan D. Jose, who are both residents there, and determined they had been drinking.
Angel Pedro, whose blood alcohol content tested .04 percent, and Juan Jose, whose BAC was .11 percent, were arrested and charged with minor consuming. They were booked into the Dubois County Security Center just after noon.
Police indicated in arrest documents that an investigation into the stabbing was ongoing.
