Cassville man stabbed in Monett

Monday, September 17, 2012

A Cassville man was hospitalized for stab wounds on Wednesday, Sept. 12, following an incident in Monett.

According to a statement from Monett Police Chief Tim Schweder, Jonathan Gemmecke, 32, reported he had been stabbed outside a house on Sixth Street shortly after 11:30 p.m.

Gemmecke drove himself to Cox Monett Hospital. He told officers he had been stabbed by a man on a bicycle with a knife. It was determined Gemmecke had serious injuries and he was flown by helicopter to a Springfield hospital for treatment.

Officers went to the Sixth Street location where they found blood on the ground. After no one answered the door, officers gained access and found a 32-year-old woman inside with a child.

"Based on evidence found at the scene and statements from witnesses, the woman was arrested for investigation of assault," the statement said.

A request for charges of first degree domestic assault charges has been submitted with Lawrence County Prosecutor Don Trotter.

Gemmecke was reported to be in critical but stable condition on Thursday afternoon.
