A 36-year-old Ketchikan man has been charged with first-degree attempted murder following a stabbing late last month.

The 29-year-old man was taken to PeaceHealth Ketchikan Medical Center and treated for his injuries.

The other man, Johnathan Jackson, had left the scene. According to police, officers found Jackson at about 7:45 p.m. and arrested him for first-degree assault. He later was indicted by a Grand Jury on charges of first-degree attempted murder, and first- and second-degree assault.

Jackson’s next scheduled hearing in the case is July 1st in front of Ketchikan Superior Court Judge William Carey.
