Christopher Drake

A man faces charges after police say a fight led to a stabbing.

Around 12:30 Saturday morning, Nicholasville Police say they were called to a fight at Three Coins Apartments on South Main Street.

Police say when they arrived, they were told a man had been taken to St. Joseph Jessamine Hospital.

Officers went to the hospital, where they say the victim told them he saw a man and woman involved in a verbal argument, and the woman was crying.

The victim asked if everything was ok, and he says the man then started fighting with him.

That man, who police say was 27-year-old Christopher Drake, allegedly pulled out a knife and stabbed the victim at least three times.

Some friends of the victim broke up the fight, and took the knife from Drake.

The victim was eventually taken from St. Joseph Jessamine to UK Hospital, where police say he was treated and released.

Drake was later arrested. Nicholasville Police have charged him with first degree assault. He's been lodged in the Jessamine County Detention Center.
