A press release was issued by the Pike County Sheriff’s Department this morning in regards to the apparent stabbing incident.

Sheriff’s Deputies, along with the Pleasant Hill Police Department, Pike County EMS and the Pleasant Hill Fire Department, responded to a report of a stabbing in the 600 block of Orrill Street in Pleasant Hill. The call apparently came into emergency dispatch just before 11 pm.
