A Brazil man finds himself behind bars after he allegedly stabbed another man four times at The Bounty Lounge, 20 E. National Ave., Brazil, early Wednesday morning.
Benjamin Johnson, 36, Brazil, is being held in the Clay County Justice Center and charged with aggravated battery causing serious bodily injury after an altercation with Blake Mullenix.
According to Brazil City Police Chief Larry Pierce, officers Beau McKinney and Johnny Bohnert responded to a call they received at approximately 2:15 a.m., Wednesday.
"They (bar patrons) pointed out a man who was visually upset," Pierce said, "and a female who was standing over another male."
Pierce added that Mullenix was playing pool when Johnson approached him "talking out of his head."
Mullenix told Police that Johnson was telling him about other criminal activities he'd committed involving children.
According to a police report, Mullenix suffered four puncture wounds to the lower back.
He was taken to Clay County Hospital but was later transferred to a hospital in Terre Haute.
"The incident is still under investigation," Pierce said.
