It happened in the 29000 block of Highway J north of Wright City. When authorities arrived, they found friends and families gathered in the front yard, claiming that the 25-year-old victim had been stabbed, and 52-year-old Robert Ray was still inside with the knife.

Deputies eventually made contact with Ray, who they were able to talk into giving up the knife.

The victim was taken to a nearby hospital.

Ray is charged with first degree assault and armed criminal action. He's currently being held on a $100,000 cash bond.
