Search Continues For Beaver Dam Stabbing Suspects

7/12/11 – Authorities continue their search for the men responsible for beating and stabbing a Beaver Dam teen early Sunday morning. It happened near the corner of Madison and West Mill Streets. Police Chief Ronald Smith says the teen was not only stabbed but also punched and struck several times with baseball bats. Witnesses say there were as many as 20 males wearing white t-shirts involved in the assault. The juvenile was taken to the Beaver Dam Community Hospital for treatment. The suspects fled on foot traveling eastbound on West Mill Street. Deputies saw three individuals matching that description and one of them ran but was later taken into custody at gunpoint. It was allegedly the victim’s older brother who was out on bond at the time. As a condition of his bond he was ordered not to have violent contact with anyone. The older brother has been formally charged with misdemeanor Disorderly Conduct, Obstructing a Police Officer and Bail Jumping. The criminal complaint does not indicate how the brother was involved in the altercation but authorities did say he’s not a suspect in the stabbing. Anyone with information about the stabbing is asked to contact the Beaver Dam Police Department.
