A man has been charged with assault in connection with a stabbing on the 300 block of East Short Street.
Jasur Abdul Muhaymin, 45, stabbed Ricky Lynn Hill, 45, in the neck at about 4:10 a.m. Friday, after a verbal altercation, according to police and Fayette District Court records.
Muhaymin was arrested on the 100 block of East Main Street at about 3 p.m. Friday and charged with first-degree assault, as well as tampering with physical evidence, since he allegedly threw the knife used in the attack in the grass as he fled the scene.
He is scheduled to be arraigned Monday.
Hill was taken to the University of Kentucky Hospital.
