MYRTLE POINT, Ore. (AP) - A 32-year-old Myrtle Point man was charged with attempted murder after a stabbing over the weekend.

The Register Guard reports (https://bit.ly/2mcmtt9 ) that police were called to a home on Saturday on a report of a stabbing.

Coos County District Attorney Paul Frasier says that police identified the stabbing suspect as Daniel Joe Speaks.
