MONROE — Authorities Tuesday identified the victim and the suspect in a Sunday morning stabbing in Frenchtown Township.

Gerald Reynolds, 23, of the Woodland Beach subdivision in Monroe, who was stabbed early Sunday at a residence in Frenchtown Township and taken to Oakwood Southshore Medical Center, Trenton, Mich., where he was in stable condition in the intensive care unit, sheriff deputies said.

Monroe County sheriff’s detectives said Shawn McCoy, 20, also of Woodland Beach, was arraigned Monday in Monroe County District Court on charges of assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder. His pretrial hearing was scheduled for Aug. 1, the sheriff’s office said.

Detectives said the victim was found at a house in the 3100 block of Elmwood Drive in Woodland Beach at 3:25 a.m. Sunday. Detectives later in the morning executed a search warrant at another residence in Woodland Beach, in the 3300 block of Beechwood Drive, and took the suspect as well as a 19-year-old Ida, Mich., woman and an 18-year-old Woodland Beach man into custody. They also seized a knife allegedly used in the assault, detectives said.

The parents of the suspect were at the residence during the incident and were interviewed at the scene, detectives said.
