After the stabbing, officers found a home on Ninth Avenue with several possible male and female suspects. KPD said several people fled on foot as officers approached.

After a brief foot chase, police took two male suspects into custody.

KPD said officers caught Tonjai Jalon Hardy, 37, after he tossed a .25 caliber handgun. He also had nearly $5,000 cash and more than 8 grams of heroin in his pockets.

A police K-9 helped locate another male suspect, Terrance Hardy, 27, who was hiding in the woods. He was charged with public intoxication and resisting arrest.

Both men are Michigan residents. KPD said both refused to cooperate with investigators and additional charges are pending.
