(KAIR)--A man required hospital treatment, and a woman went to jail, following a weekend stabbing at an Atchison apartment complex.

Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson told MSC News Amber Benoit, of Atchison, was arrested Sunday morning in connection with the stabbing. “7:45 Sunday morning, officers responded to a disturbance at an apartment complex in the 1200 block of North 5th. Officers there did locate a 27-year-old male who had three stab wounds to the back area. He was transported to a hospital in Saint Joseph by EMS. That investigation led to the arrest of a 29-year-old female who was taken into custody at the scene.”

Wilson told MSC News investigators learned that Benoit, and the victim, identified as 27-year-old Devon Mackie, lived together at the apartment, along with the victim's 28-year-old brother, identified as Benoit's boyfriend. “At the scene, when we arrived, he was outside the apartment. He had an injured hand, apparently being cut himself. We're not aware that he received any medical treatment, but he did have an injury. He then told us about the disturbance that had occurred, that his brother was inside the apartment, or near the inside of the apartment, with these wounds.”

Once Mackie was located, he was transported for treatment of his injuries. “[They] appeared to be non-life threatening, but we did know, early on from medical staff, that a lung may have been injured, and of course, that could present problems. Although his exact condition is unknown, we know that he has survived.”

Benoit now faces charges for aggravated battery and domestic battery.

Following her arrest, she was booked into the Atchison County Jail.

“What we learned when we first got there is that this had been an ongoing disturbance throughout the night,” Wilson added.

The investigation is continuing.
