JUNCTION CITY, Kan. (WIBW) -- Four people are recovering from stab wounds after a violent weekend incident in Junction City. Meanwhile, the suspect remains in custody.
On Saturday, August 10th, 2013 at 2:24 AM, the Junction City Police Department responded to the northwest corner of the intersection of 6th & Jackson St. in reference to a stabbing.
According to Junction City Police Chief Tim Brown, upon arrival, officers found four victims suffering from stab wounds. Two of the victim’s appeared to have suffered "serious, possible life threatening wounds" and the two others suffered minor injuries.
Police took a man into custody at the scene and questioned him at the police department. After interviewing witnesses to the incident and the suspect, detectives arrested 34-year-old Jason Babylon of Junction City and charged him with four counts of Aggravated Battery.
All of the victims were taken to Geary Community Hospital in Junction City for treatment of their injuries.
Two of the victims were transferred to Stormont Vail in Topeka for further treatment of their injuries. Colin McCarty, 21,of Sierra Vista, Arizona and Erick Rollins, 22, of Fort Riley, Kansas, are both listed in stable condition at Stormont Vail.
Andrew Trammel, 28, of St. Louis, Missouri, and Priscilla Mora, 25, of Junction City, were treated and released from Geary Community Hospital.
Chief Brown says the victims and suspect do not know each other. The stabbings, he told WIBW, were the result of a heated argument over comments Babylon reportedly made to some girls. No other details were released.
Bond was set at $50,000 for Jason Babylon this past weekend by a Geary County District Court Judge. Geary County Jail officials said Monday that he remained behind bars.
