UPDATE 11:10 a.m. — One suspect accused of stabbing a Fremont man Tuesday afternoon turned himself in when he learned police were looking for him Wednesday evening.
Christopher Jones, 31, Fremont, remains in the Sandusky County jail on a felonious assault charge.
Police are still searching for a second suspect, Nicholas Rowan, 26, Fremont, who is wanted on a warrant for felonious assault.
Anyone with information about Rowan's whereabouts should call Fremont police, at 419-334-6464, and should not approach him, Capt. Tim Woolf said.
Original story — Lawrence Coley, 39, of Fremont, remains in the University of Toledo Medical Center after suffering four stab wounds, Fremont police Chief Tim Wiersma said.

Fremont police received a 911 call at about 4:17 p.m., alerting them to an incident near Sandusky and Middle streets. They arrived to find Coley suffering from multiple stab wounds. Paramedics took him to Fremont Memorial Hospital, and he was then flown by medical helicopter to the hospital in Toledo.

His injuries did not appeared to be life-threatening, Wiersma said.

After speaking with Coley Wednesday afternoon in Toledo, officers started searching for two suspects.

“We would like to question those two suspects,” Wiersma said.

Police suspect Coley and the person who attacked him both drove to the area to meet each other.

There is no fear for public safety, Wiersma said.


Simple Enough II

If his injuries were not life threatening, why the hell was he life flighted?


I think they life flight everyone these days. All has to do with the "sue happy" America. If they fly you to a different hospital then you can sue that one! I like when they call the hospital you are flown to and you are no longer a patient. If you are release by the next day, you probably didn't need life flight either! What a waste of resources and MONEY!!!! I want to know if you can refuse to use it. The insurance companies must throw a fit. I can imagine trying to get that paid! Heck I can't get an xray paid, let alone a helicopter ride.

Probably because Fremont memorial is not a trauma center. Is the fpd chief a doctor? How does he know the wounds are not life threatening?
