MORRIS – A Michigan man is sitting in the Grundy County Jail after a traffic stop found he was wanted in St. Joseph County, Michigan, for assault with the intent to murder.

Joshua L. Webster, 32, of Sturgis, Michigan, was arrested by Grundy County sheriff's deputies Monday on two Michigan warrants for armed robbery and assault with intent to murder, as well as local charges of driving with a suspended license, possession of a stolen motor vehicle, unlawful use of a credit card and possession of a controlled substance. He also was cited for illegal transportation of alcohol and not wearing his seatbelt.

According to the Sturgis Journal, Webster is accused of stabbing a man late Sunday in Sturgis. The victim was stabbed several times in the neck and chest, and was listed in stable condition after being airlifted to the facility, according to the article. Officials said the assault took place during a robbery attempt. Webster fled in a stolen vehicle after the stabbing.

Grundy County Sheriff Kevin Callahan said Webster is in the Grundy County Jail.   

"[This is an instance] of not only keeping the roads safe, but in this case we were able to take a fugitive off the streets," Callahan said.
