1 suspect in stabbing arrested

A man was arrested early Saturday after stabbing and critically injuring a woman, Fort Wayne police said.

The stabbing occurred about 4 a.m. at 2615 Fairfield View Place, police said.

Michael R. Johnson, 21, of Fort Wayne, was arrested on a preliminary charge of felony aggravated battery. The victim, a woman, was in critical condition at a hospital, police said.
