Wooster man arrested in murder attempt

A 22-year-old Wooster man Christopher Rouse was arrested Sunday morning for the attempted murder of a 68-year-old man.

According to Wooster Police Chief Steve Glick, Rouse broke into a residence around 1:30 a.m. and was caught by the homeowner. Rouse fought with the wife after attempts to call 9-1-1, at which point her husband intervened, resulting in Rouse cutting his forehead and stabbing him in the chest.

The victims, along with Rouse, were transported to the Wooster Community Hospital where they were treated for injuries and released.
