Victim of stabbing undergoes surgery; assault charge filed

NEOSHO, Mo. — The victim of an assault last week in Neosho required surgery to repair a stab wound to a kidney, according to Neosho police.

Police Chief David McCracken said Micah Boudreaux, 21, was stabbed in his side with a pocketknife in an altercation with Tyler Walton, 21, on Thursday night outside the home of Autumn Moss, 22. Walton is the ex-boyfriend and Boudreaux the current boyfriend of Moss, according to police.

Police were called to the home shortly after 9 p.m. Thursday concerning an alleged misdemeanor assault of Moss by Walton. While officers were looking for Walton, he returned to the scene and got into the altercation with Boudreaux, according to police. Walton was arrested shortly after the stabbing and was charged with first-degree assault.

Boudreaux underwent surgery Friday at Freeman Hospital West in Joplin.

McCracken said Monday he did not know whether Boudreaux remained in the hospital.
