Attempted murder charge in Waterloo stabbing

Trevor C. Hudson

A 26-year-old man faces an attempted murder charge following an early Friday morning stabbing in Waterloo that injured one man.

Waterloo Police Chief Jeff Prosise said the stabbing occurred shortly after 3:30 a.m. in the 200 block of Osterhage Drive.

Police received multiple 911 calls from neighbors after a 38-year-old man knocked on doors seeking help. The stabbing victim was transported by Monroe County EMS ambulance to a St. Louis hospital for treatment of lacerations to his neck and back. He was reported to be in stable condition.

Officers conducted a search and eventually located a male suspect in a backyard. He was transported to the Monroe County Jail and is expected to be charged Saturday, Prosise said.

The two men were acquaintances, Prosise said, but are not family members. The men were visitors of the residence in which the stabbing took place. Other people were inside the home when the incident took place, Prosise said, but there were no witnesses to the actual stabbing.

On Sunday, Monroe County State’s Attorney Chris Hitzemann announced that Trevor C. Hudson, 26, of Waterloo, has been charged with one count of attempted murder and two counts of armed violence. All three charges are Class X felonies.

Court information alleges that while armed with a knife with a blade of at least three inches in length, Hudson caused great bodily harm to Marco Conrad by stabbing him in the neck and back.

Hudson remains in custody at the Monroe County Jail with bond set at $500,000.
