Sterling stabbing victim in stable condition

Suspect arrested


STERLING — A stabbing Saturday night near Cliff’s Bar in Sterling left one person hospitalized and another jailed.

According to Undersheriff Don McIntyre, at approximately 2:14 a.m. on June 15 the 911 dispatchers received a call about a stabbing in progress near the bar. The Michigan State Police, Arenac County Sheriff’s Department and Saginaw Chippewa Tribal Police responded and were on scene, and the victim, the bar’s bouncer, was taken to St. Mary’s of Michigan Saginaw Hospital.

“There was an argument and a physical altercation in bar that spilled out into the street,” McIntyre said.

McIntyre said a suspect, Robert John Vincent III, 23, of Long Lake, was then located and taken into police custody. He was arraigned June 17 in the 81st District Court on charges of assault with intent to murder, two counts of assault and battery, and two counts of resisting or obstructing an officer.

If convicted, Vincent could face any number of years in prison up to life for assault with intent to murder, two years and/or $5,000 for each count of obstructing an officer, and $500 and/or 93 days for each count of assault and battery.
