A Jefferson City juvenile is a suspect in a multiple stabbing incident that occurred over the holiday weekend in the Lake of the Ozarks area, according to the Camden County Sheriff’s Department.

Camden County Sheriff Dwight Franklin said Monday night that deputies from his office were called to Lake Regional Hospital during the early morning hours last Friday.

Hospital personnel called police when several victims arrived in the emergency room for treatment of stab wounds.

Camden County sheriff investigators determined one individual was stabbed during an altercation had occurred at a residence on Three Seasons Road, off State Route KK.
