Search for stabbing suspect leads to high speed chase

November 17, 2008

A high speed chase crosses counties and the state line, and police still don't have their man.

Police say it's a suspect from a stabbing last month in Joplin.

They narrowed in on him Monday and the chase began.

Police say the chase started in Joplin, then raced over to Cherokee County, Kansas where authorities lost sight of the suspect.

Police are still searching for Matt Putnam, who is charged with assault and armed criminal action in the October stabbing.

He is accused of stabbing a person in the heart in a Joplin parking lot.

The victim survived.
