Two Lawrence men were treated and released from Lawrence Memorial Hospital Thursday morning after suffering stab wounds during a family-related altercation. Police arrested two men after the incident.

According to Lawrence Police Sgt. Susan Hadl, officers were called to an apartment complex in the 1700 block of West 24th Street about 3:15 a.m. in reference to an unknown emergency.

When officers first arrived at the scene, they observed several individuals involved in a physical altercation in a hallway. Hadl said the incident was believed to have started when two of the men engaged in an argument.

One of the men was the other's soon-to-be brother-in-law. Hadl said the argument had escalated into a physical altercation and two more family members became involved.

The altercation continued to escalate until one man, believed to be a 27-year-old Lawrence resident, grabbed a knife. The man proceeded to injure the three other men. Hadl said two of the brothers, a 23 and 26-year-old, sustained serious injuries from the knife during the incident while the other received a laceration but refused treatment.

The two brothers were transported by ambulance to Lawrence Memorial Hospital, where they were treated and released Thursday morning.

Police arrested 27-year-old Misael Alonzo Martinez on charges of aggravated battery and disorderly conduct. One of the brothers, 23-year-old Juan Hernandez, was arrested on charges of battery.

I feel a hot wind on my shoulder And the touch of a world that is older I turn the switch and check the number I leave it on when in bed I slumber I hear the rhythms of the music I buy the product and never use it I hear the talking of the DJ Can't understand just what does he say?

bigmike (anonymous) says… It is kinda starting to feel like little Mexico around here...

I see I'm not the only one that thinks Cederwood Apartsments has crossed the line. Evidently they have figured out there is big money to be made renting to illegals. The whole neighborhood is suffering because of it. Have to wonder what it is doing to the resale values of the homes around it. There has been a lot of trouble at these apartments lately, it would be nice if the noise would quiet down after 10 pm too. Tired of the fighting and shouting at night. There is no local management to call and complain to at night.

Bad news guys. The cuzins were originally arrested at 6:59 and 7:14 this morning. Unfortunately, the arresting officer just got back from his vacation in Arizona. The cuzins were put on hold at 9:00 and 9:05. They are now on ice being held for ICE.

Think Google/ads is on to something, here's the ad I got on this article:

>

---seems Google Ads thinks at least one of the two or three brothers-in-law [see above] has brain trouble!

but then, according to one poster, I am a pig anyway.

This incident was not at Colony Woods but further down at Hampton Court apartments or possibly Cedar Wood across 24th St.

I'm guessing that a family Thanksgiving dinner with all those turkey carving knifes is maybe a bad idea.

and, he jes made a mistake!


so, the bride and groom were registered with black and decker, and with smith and wessen.
but the soon-to-be inlaws took umbradge with the choice of china pattern. they wanted Winter Rose, but the groom's family preferred blue willow.
first, some earl gray tea was spilled and shameful words was uttered.
the groom said he wasnt gonna take it anymore and he grabbed fer the grapefruit knife.
... friends don't let friends fight drunk ...

One of the men was the other's soon-to-be brother-in-law.

Wouldn't that make the other man the other's soon to be brother-in-law as well?

Two of the men were soon-to-be brothers-in-law?
