Stabbing victim says self defense claim is a lie

HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) - A Perry County stabbing victim says the suspect's claim that it was self defense is a lie.

Steven Sizemore was stabbed at his home on Noble Mountain Drive in Hazard.

The suspect,19-year-old Jonathan Stewart, told us from jail he went to Sizemore's home to clear up an argument over a hat.

Sizemore says Stewart attacked him first with a stick and he fought back with a crutch before Stewart pulled the blade.

Police later caught Stewart and arrested him on assault charges.
