ALTON — Metro East prosecutors on Thursday charged a Godfrey man with attempted murder following a stabbing that occurred last weekend.

Batrail D. Johnson, 44, was taken into custody Wednesday by Alton police and his bond was set at $250,000.

Officers were called Sunday to the 1200 block of Belle Street in Alton after authorities say a 37-year-old man from Edwardsville was stabbed during an argument.

The injured man ran to a nearby residence for help. He was taken to a St. Louis hospital where he was listed in stable condition.

Johnson was charged by the Madison County State's Attorney's Office.
