A 35-year-old man was arrested for allegedly stabbing someone Monday.

Kennet Sarco faces one felony count of second-degree assault with intentional use of a weapon, one felony count of third-degree assault with intent to cause fear with a weapon and a misdemeanor count of fourth-degree assault with intent to cause fear.

An affidavit states that the person who was stabbed came to the Kodiak Police Department at 2 a.m. Monday stating that Sarco had stabbed him in the chest. 

Officers noted a 1-inch wide injury on his chest. Officers also noticed that the stab victim, who provided sporadic information, was showing signs of manic behavior. He said that he had been working on Sarco’s vehicle Sunday and acknowledged he had called Sarco a foul name.

The victim stated that he later spoke with Sarco to arrange a time to meet for payment for the work. When he arrived at Sarco’s location on Selief Lane, the victim described Sarco as “tweeking;” he was still angry with the victim about calling him a foul name.

According to the affidavit, at that point, Sarco punched the victim in the face lightly, went into the kitchen and grabbed what appeared to be a paring knife.

The victim was transported to Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center for evaluation. A further examination of the victim revealed he had suffered an additional puncture wound on the left side of his back. 

Sarco was arraigned in court on Tuesday at the Roy H. Madsen Justice Center.
