Update: Giese victim of stabbing

Lucas Giese, 28, remains in stable condition and could be released from the hospital on Monday following a stabbing in Morris early Saturday morning, according to Morris Chief of Police Jim Beauregard.

Early on Saturday, March 15, Morris Police Officers responded to report of a disturbance and stabbing on the 500 block of West 6th street.

No arrests have been made in connection with the incident but police have been conducting numerous interviews, Beauregard said.

"We're trying to piece things together," he said. "We have suspects in mind but we want to make sure we're piecing a good case together."

There was a party at the residence and an argument escalated into a pushing match that moved outside the residence, which apparently is where the stabbing occurred, Beauregard said.

Giese had sustained stab wounds to his upper body. He was transported to the Stevens Community Medical Center in Morris, Beauregard said.

Police in the last three days have been identifying and interviewing potential witnesses, he said.

"By the time we got there, you can imagine a lot of people were leaving," Beauregard said.

He added that the public is not in any danger.

"It's an isolated incident," he said.

The Morris Police Department is investigating the assault, and anyone with information can contact the Morris Police Department at (320) 589-1155.
