BUTLER COUNTY, Pa. - Police in Butler said a man accused of stabbing another man with a steak knife Wednesday turned himself into police.
Channel 11’s Amy Marcinkiewicz was there when 25-year-old John Conley turned himself into authorities Thursday.
Marcinkiewicz reported that Conley said, “I didn’t do it. It was self-defense. Three guys jumped me.”
According to the criminal complaint, John Conley and three others went into a bathroom at a North Elm Street apartment to discuss an electric bill and that’s when the stabbing occurred.
The unidentified victim was stabbed in the back, police said, and has since been released from the hospital.
