Ronan Man Jailed for Allegedly Stabbing Neighbor

Posted: Updated:
RONAN -

A Lake County man is facing a charge of attempted deliberate homicide after a stabbing in Ronan.

Lake County Undersheriff Dan Yonkin said that dispatchers received a report that a male was stabbed just before 5 p.m. on Wednesday.

Undersheriff Yonkin said that Ronan Police officers and Lake County Sheriff's deputies responded to the Gardiner Apartments on Main St., where they found two men with stab wounds.

Val Maxwell, who is the Ronan Police Chief, said that 41-year-old Eugene Seylor allegedly stabbed his neighbor, who lived in the apartment upstairs.

Chief Maxwell said that after the stabbing, the victim grabbed a framing hammer and used it to fend off Seyler.

Seyler is currently jailed in the Lake County Detention Center after being treated at Kalispell Regional Medical Center for serious injuries.

The 46-year-old victim was taken to St. Luke Hospital in Ronan and underwent emergency surgery for life-threatening injuries.

An investigation to determine the motive in the stabbing is ongoing and officials are attempting to interview the stabbing victim, who's name has not been released at this time.
