47 year old Walter Linton was arrested and charged with attempted murder in the wake of a stabbing behind The Shelter Friday night.

Arrest papers say victim Johnny Ellis was slashed in the back of the neck with a boxcutter. Officers described the wound as 3 1/2 to 4 inches long and an inch or more deep.

A witness told police the slashing followed a fight in the parking lot of the nearby Time Saver convenience store. The witness told police Linton was harrassing a woman and Ellis tried to intervene.

He says Linton later came up behind Ellis as he stood on the sidewalk near the shelter and slashed his neck.

Police found Ellis in the parking lot at Mike's Beer Barn.

Police found Linton on Macomb Street near the shelter. Officers say he had blood on both of his hands and a folding knife in his pocket.
