Police have arrested a man suspected of stabbing two people Wednesday in Topeka’s Oakland neighborhood.
Topeka Police spokeswoman Amy McCarter says 35-year-old Brian Downing, of Topeka, was booked Thursday into the Shawnee County Jail on two counts of aggravated battery.
The stabbing occurred around 11 p.m. Wednesday in the 400 block of NE Grattan.
Lt. Andrew Beightel said a man and woman at the house told police they were cut by an acquaintance. The suspect then fled the area on foot.
Both victims were taken by ambulance to a local hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries.
Jail records show Downing is being held without bond.
