ELIZABETHTOWN, KY (WAVE) - A Hardin County man showed up at a neighbor's home asking for help after being stabbed several times.

Kentucky State Police say Rodney Woods, 34, admitted to stabbing Darren Peters, 24, just before midnight Sunday on First Street in Elizabethtown.

Peters was taken to University of Louisville Hospital with serious injuries.

Woods claims the stabbing was in self-defense. However, statements from witnesses to troopers contradicted the claims made by Woods.

Woods is charged with assault.
