TERRE HAUTE, Ind (WTHI) - Police surround a Terre Haute home hoping to lure a stabbing suspect out.
It happened Wednesday morning at a house on the corner of 14 th and Elm Streets in Terre Haute.
Police swarmed the home blocking off the street on both ends.
They were working to lure Jeremiah Lamaster, a stabbing suspect out of the home.
Lamaster was wanted by authorities for his possible involvement in a recent stabbing.
The stabbing took place in the 800 block of Locust Street on Sunday.
Police used a bullhorn to communicate with Lamaster, who refused to come out for about 45 minutes.
"The victim was allegedly stabbed by a known suspect. We were unable to locate a suspect on that day. Statements were taken from victim and witness and other witnesses. The arrest warrant was executed today," THPD Detective Rick Decker said.
Lamaster does have a criminal history that includes reckless homicide and dangerous possession of a firearm.
Lamaster is due in court Thursday.
