Lasalle Avenue man arrested for stabbing neighbor with a knife

A 51-year-old Lasalle Avenue man was arrested after he allegedly slashed a neighbor during an argument late Thursday morning.

Because the alleged victim was holding a two-year-old child during the incident, Michael Turner was charged with second-degree assault for allegedly cutting the adult victim’s left shoulder with a knife slash, harassment and endangering the welfare of a child. The woman told police she put the child down on the floor to protect it during the incident.
