FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - A man will spend the next year on supervised probation after an early-morning stabbing of a Fargo man earlier this year.

Fargo Police responded to the intersection of 25th Street and Demores Dr. S. on May 6 after a 24-year-old man called 911 saying he had been stabbed. When officers arrived on scene, documents say they found the victim had lost ‘a great deal’ of blood, but told officers a man named ‘Jon Jon’ had robbed him of $1,000 before stabbing him.

Three days after the stabbing, 23-year-old Jonathon Peterson was arrested in Beltrami County, Minn., and was charged with robbery and aggravated assault. However, a plea agreement with prosecutors dropped the first charge and amended the second to a misdemeanor count of assault.

Court records state a judge sentenced Peterson to one year in jail, and would first serve 135 days. Peterson was also given credit for the 135 days he’s already served behind bars. As long as Peterson abides by the guidelines of his supervised probation for the next year, he will avoid further jail time.
