A Warren man is behind bars after allegedly stabbing a man on Saturday.

According to the report, a man was stabbed around 2 a.m. on the 1000 block of Lovers Lane NW in Warren.

Police say a man was laying on the front porch of a house in the area with his upper body covered in blood.

A resident at the home told police that he heard a loud banging on the door and saw a man he believed was the suspect sitting by a van nearby.

Reports say Eric Jackson was sitting against the van and was highly intoxicated.

Police say Jackson said that he stabbed the victim and still had the knife on him.

According to the report, Jackson told police that the victim tried to kill him, but then changed the story saying the victim attempted to rape him.

Officers reported that Jackson had no scrapes or bruises on his body.

Jackson pleaded not guilty during his arraignment Monday and is scheduled to appear in court again on July 29.
