APPLETON — Police arrested a 61-year-old Appleton man Sunday after they say he sliced another man’s neck with a knife.

Michael W. Miller, 61, was taken into custody and is confined at the Outagamie County Jail. He faces a possible charge of attempted first-degree intentional homicide.

Police say they were called about 2:20 p.m. to the 1100 block of W. College Avenue for a report of a physical fight involving a weapon.

When they arrived, officers found a 54-year-old Appleton man with what they say appeared to be a knife wound to the neck.

The first police officer on the scene quickly began controlling the bleeding, which stabilized the victim’s condition until the arrival of Gold Cross Ambulance and the Appleton Fire Department.

The victim was transported to an area hospital.
