The man wanted by police for an assault at a funeral last week turned himself in to authorities Monday afternoon, Jessamine County Chief Deputy Allen Peel said.
Anthony R. Floyd, 30, turned himself in at the Jessamine County Detention Center in Nicholasville, Peel said.
A warrant for Floyd's arrest on second-degree assault was issued last week after he stabbed a 48-year-old man at a Sept. 14 graveside service at Blue Grass Memorial Gardens in northern Jessamine County. The service was for Floyd's 2-month-old daughter, Ariyana Navaeh Floyd.
The man, who was not identified, was a grandfather to the child, and Floyd did not want him there, Peel said last week.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Oct. 3 in Jessamine District Court, Peel said. At that time, a judge will hear evidence and determine whether there is probable cause to send the case to a grand jury for possible indictment.
Floyd was released from the jail Tuesday after posting a $5,000 unsecured bond.
