TIPPECANOE CO., Ind. (WLFI) – Charges are filed against a Lafayette man after prosecutors said he stabbed a man for being too loud at an apartment complex.

Prosecutors said on Wednesday, Feb. 26 Diunte Moon, 20, stabbed a man in the chest and hand after an argument at an apartment complex on the 1500 block of Schuyler Avenue in Lafayette.

Police said the property manager told officers that Moon was arguing with his neighbors. He told the manager to call police, because he was going to fight people in the apartment next to him. Moon then left the complex’s office.

The victim Frank Marshall, 25, was outside a friend’s apartment as Moon exited the office. Witnesses said as Marshall was trying to get back inside, he was tackled to the ground by Moon and stabbed. Police said another man forced Moon out of the apartment and locked the door before calling police.

Marshall was transported to St. Elizabeth Hospital and has since been released.

Moon faces charges of battery by means of a deadly weapon, a Class C Felony, and criminal recklessness while armed with a deadly weapon, a Class D Felony.
