MIDLAND - No charges have been filed following a stabbing Saturday night in Midland.

That's because police are still trying to sort it out.

Police say the stabbing happened at the Hunters Ridge Apartments on Saturday night.

Officers received several calls about a man walking down Midland Drive bleeding.

At first, the victim, 39-year-old John Washington, claimed he fell on some glass.

But it turns out he was actually stabbed by his girlfriend at the apartments where they lived together.

Police say, the girlfriend, 45-year-old Deborah Gillard admitted to stabbing Washington but claims it was self-defense.

Washington was taken to the hospital but left before he was treated.

Police say he is not cooperating with their investigation.
