January 09, 2006

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - A 19-year-old Hancock man suffered a cut to the neck, two puncture wounds to the back and a lung injury Saturday after a stabbing off U.S. 522, police said.

Mike Broadwater was taken to Washington County Hospital and was expected to survive his injuries, West Virginia State Police Cpl. A.T. Peer said.

Broadwater's name did not appear in hospital records Sunday night, a hospital spokesman said.

Zebulon Weinschel, 24, of Hancock, has been charged with malicious wounding, Peer said. Weinschel was free on bond, Peer said.

It is not clear when the stabbing occurred, Peer said.

There was a party in Hancock and Broadwater and two other people left the party and went to a gravel road along a CSX track about a mile west of the U.S. 522 bridge that crosses the Potomac River, Peer said.

Broadwater and the two other people were going to see a cave when the stabbing occurred, Peer said.

Broadwater was put into a car and driven to a Sheetz convenience store in Hancock, where someone called for help, Peer said.
