Huntington police said they are investigating a stabbing that occurred during a domestic dispute.
Joseph Vernatter, 22, was stabbed in the stomach with a box cutter during a domestic disturbance that occurred about 6:30 a.m. Friday outside a home on the 100 block of Main Street, according to a news release from the Huntington Police Department.
Police said Vernatter asked his ex-girlfriend to come over to his house to tend to a child the two share. She arrived with her boyfriend who waited outside in a car.
Police said Vernatter had been drinking and went outside in an attempt to assault his ex-girlfriend's boyfriend. The two started fighting and when Vernatter attempted to hit the suspect with a brick, he was cut with a box cutter, police said.
Police didn't arrest the suspect and said the case will be reviewed for presentment to the grand jury.
Vernatter was taken to the hospital with a serious wound but is expected to be OK.
