October 14, 2016

DIETERICH — One man was flown to a hospital Friday morning after what police described as a stabbing in Dieterich.

The Effingham County Sheriff’s Department released little other information about the incident, but said a man and woman have been detained for questioning.

Effingham County Sheriff Dave Mahon said detectives were still in the preliminary stages of an investigation. He said the alleged victim was flown to Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana for treatment.

Mahon confirmed that the detainees had been taken into custody from a home in the 200 block of West Center Street. He declined to release their names, but said that more information would be released later in the day.

Mahon said the public has no reason to be alarmed.
