A man accused of stabbing another man over the weekend in East Nashville was found in possession of a metal wire that could cause a puncture wound, Metro police said.
Michael Quinn, 52, was charged with attempted aggravated robbery with serious bodily injury in connection with the Sunday morning stabbing incident.
According to an arrest affidavit, officers were approached around 8 a.m. by a man stating he had been stabbed in the arm by a man he knew only as “Redfox.”
Police later spotted Quinn, a man matching the description of the stabbing suspect, walking on South 5th Street near Fatherland Street.
Quinn appeared to be intoxicated and had a “strong metal wire that was bent on one end” which could be used as a weapon to produce a puncture wound, officers said.
The victim told police the stabbing happened because the suspect asked for money and he refused.
Officers said the victim was expected to recover from his injuries.
Quinn was arrested and held on a $5,000 bond. He is expected in court Thursday morning.
