CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (WEAU) -- Investigators arrested a man accused of stabbing another man during the weekend.

On Saturday, officers arrested Brian Savina, 32, of Stanley. The Chippewa County Sheriff's Department responded to a report of the stabbing in the Town of Delmar, which is north of Stanley, at 5:30 p.m. Saturday. Investigators say there was a "disturbance," between Savina and Patrick Wiese, 51, of Lublin. Deputies say the two are acquaintances, and that Wiese was stabbed with a steak knife. There's no word on where or how many times he was stabbed. Savina had left the scene before investigators arrived, but Cadott police found him shortly after that in a red van at the River Country Co-op Cadott Cenex on State Highway 27.

Wiese ended up with non-life-threatening injuries. He was the only one who was injured. A lieutenant at the Chippewa County Jail says Savina was booked on 1st Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety, Child Abuse, and Substantial Battery. Criminal charges had not been filed in the case as of Tuesday afternoon. Deputies say they are not looking for any other suspects in the case.
