A North Judson man is jailed following a stabbing last Thursday at Born’s Trailer Park in North Judson.
Deputies from the Starke County Sheriff’s Office responded to the emergency room at IU Health Starke Hospital around 3:40 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 9 after a man came in with a stab wound. The victim told the officers he had gotten into a fight with someone in the trailer park the previous day and was stabbed.
Detectives followed up and found the suspect, 29-year-old Christopher Gross of North Judson, at a home on Detroiter Street in the trailer park. Following an interview, he was arrested on a preliminary charge of aggravated battery causing serious bodily injury to another person. It’s a Level 5 felony, which carries a penalty of between one and six years in prison. Gross is jailed on a $25,000 surety bond.
