One Arrested After Officers Respond to Report of Knife-Wielding Man


Officers from the Starke and Pulaski County Sheriff’s Departments and Winamac and Medaryville Police converged on a residence on U.S. 35 north of Winamac last night in response to multiple calls about a knife-wielding man chasing a woman. The officers wound up at 4755 North U.S. 35 and reportedly found Benton Christopher Howard, 41, in a bedroom with self-inflicted knife wounds. He was arrested on a criminal confinement charge. That incident remains under investigation.
