A New Castle man was arrested and charged with attempted homicide Sunday evening after police say he repeatedly stabbed another man.

New Castle Police were called to a house in the 700 block of North Cedar Street at about 6 p.m. for a disturbance, according to a release from that department.

A woman came out of the house shouting "he stabbed him, he stabbed him," and Robert Morris, 50, stumbled out of the house with multiple stab wounds, police said.

Jason Wilshusen, 27, was arrested and is being charged with attempted homicide, two counts each of aggravated assault and simple assault, and possession of instruments of a crime.

Morris was transported to St. Elizabeth Hospital in Youngstown, where officials declined to give information on his condition.
