FOSTORIA, Ohio (WTVG) - Authorities in Fostoria have located a man they were looking for earlier Friday in connection to the stabbing of a 35-year-old man.

According to the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office, authorities were looking for a 23-year-old man who police say is a “subject of interest” after a 35-year-old man was stabbed in the head on Friday. It happened on Axeline road in Fostoria. The victim was taken to an area hospital for their injuries and has since been released.

The news release from the sheriff says investigators believe the stabbing was an isolated incident and alcohol played a role.

Numerous law enforcement agencies, including a canine unit and a drone team, were involved in an “extensive” search of the area for the man, police said. The sheriff’s office later sent out an update saying they located the person of interest. It’s unclear at this time whether the man is facing any charges in the incident.
