Exclusive: Water St. Stabbing Victim Speaks
A TODAY’S TMJ4 Exclusive: a Marquette student was arrested for stabbing two people inside a bar, including a fellow student.
One of the victims talked with TODAY’S TMJ4’s Melanie Stout Monday.
It was a frantic scene early Saturday inside Sullivan’s bar on Water Street.
Two 20-year-old women were stabbed by another 20-year-old woman.
One of the victims is Katlynn Dallmann. The Marquette student is now out of the hospital and recovering. Dallmann talked Monday with TMJ4's Melanie Stout.
“I have 19 (stitches) in my arm. I have 8 at the top of my eye, 16 below my eye,” Dallmann explained.
Dallmann said she and the suspect lived in the same dorm last year, but she doesn't know her personally. She wouldn't say what the argument inside Sullivan’s was about, but can't believe it went this far.
“I remember the first time she came at me and I actually thought it was a punch,” Dallmann said.
It was no punch. She and her friend were both stabbed twice.
“She actually got cut right here and they had to do surgery on her muscle to reattach it, stitches,” Dallmann said.
There were a lot of people inside the bar that saw the stabbing and bloody scene.
“I turned around and saw her grab her shoulder and she just kinda squatted down against the building and the bouncer started yelling for rags and asked if anyone had clothes they could throw on her. I turned around and there was another girl that came towards me and she had a gash on her arm and eye,” witness Kelly Kasinski said.
That girl was Dallmann. She's scarred for her life and wants justice done.
“A little argument doesn't escalate to this and now I’m gonna have to live with this forever,” Dallmann said.
