A man was flown after a stabbing in Shenandoah early Wednesday and a suspect has been taken into custody.

According to court papers filed through Magisterial District Judge Anthony Kilker's office, on Wednesday morning, around 3:23am, Shenandoah Police Captain Travis Bowman and Officer Mindi Petrus received a dispatch to 110 North Main Street for a stabbing.

The officers arrived to find the caller and the victim outside the address.

The caller reported that 18-year-old Bryce Beaver and the victim were fighting in the hallway of the home and caller pulled the victim from the home.
