Just before 1:30 a.m. on Sept. 26, a fight occurred near the Ann Street Plaza, Deputy Chief Steve Gonzalez of East Lansing Police Department wrote in an email.

During the confrontation, an individual was stabbed, causing significant yet non-life-threatening injuries. The individual was then transported to the hospital for further care.

A suspect has been identified and put into custody. ELPD detectives will be presenting the case to Ingham County Prosecutor's Office for review.
