At approximately 3:10 a.m. Friday, an Ottumwa police officer stopped a vehicle in the 1900 block of East Main Street.

During the stop, the officer discovered that the passenger in the vehicle, a 40-year-old male, was suffering from multiple stab wounds. The officer further learned that the stabbing allegedly happened at Royal Rest Motel, 2211 Roemer Ave., which sits opposite of Stardust Motel.
