Indiana man stabbed with machete, knives

TRAVERSE CITY — An Indiana man who received three stab wounds during a weekend altercation was released from Munson Medical Center, said Traverse City Police Capt. Mike Ayling.

The man, Dwight Johnathan Thompson, 35, faces charges related to cocaine and marijuana possession, as well as a habitual offender charge, said Bob Cooney, Grand Traverse County’s prosecuting attorney. He faces eight years in prison if convicted.

Thompson was found in possession of crack cocaine, Cooney said.

Police believe Thompson was stabbed by three men on Northwestern Michigan College’s campus. Thompson received wounds to his head, left arm, and left back area, Ayling said. The head wound was made by a machete and the other two by knives, he said.

Thompson has a preliminary hearing scheduled for Feb. 19.

Police have yet to arrest the suspects in the attack on Thompson.
