Frankfort Police Arrest Stabbing Suspect Following Standoff

Frankfort, IN – At approximately 8:23 AM, Frankfort Police responded to the 50 block of S. Williams Street for a report of a Domestic Disturbance. After arriving, officers located a 28-year-old male victim who had been stabbed in the face and was bleeding profusely.

According to Chief Troy Bacon, “After officers arrived, the alleged suspect barricaded himself inside the residence and refused to come out. Information provided to officers indicated there was a firearm inside of the residence; therefore, the Clinton County SWAT team was called to assist”.

After an hour standoff with limited communication, the suspect, Javier F. Matias (22 years old) of Frankfort, surrendered to police and was taken into custody by Frankfort Police and members of the Clinton County SWAT team.

“These types of situations can be very stressful and unpredictable. I am proud of the teamwork of everyone involved and grateful that we were able to bring this situation to a peaceful end,” said Bacon.

The victim was transported to the hospital due to his injuries. Javier F. Matias was arrested for Battery with a Deadly Weapon, Intimidation, Confinement, and Interfering with Reporting a Crime. He was transported to the Clinton County Jail, where he awaits formal charges.
