MASCOUTAH – On Sunday morning, Sept. 4, police responded to a report of three customers stabbed at a local bar in Mascoutah.
According to Mascoutah Police Chief Scott Waldrup, at approximately 12:30 am, Mascoutah Police Officers responded to Skootr’s, located at 323 West Main Street, in reference to a fight/stabbing incident.
Upon arrival, officers discovered that a verbal altercation had occurred outside of the bar which led to the suspect hitting a female victim in the face. A physical fight ensued when the suspect allegedly pulled a knife and injured three victims. Alex Frank, 37, of Mascoutah was taken into custody at the scene with a knife being recovered.
The victims were all identified as Mascoutah residents, Jason Green (age 41), Natasha Green (age 43) and Michelle Parks (age 42). Mascoutah EMS responded and transported all victims to area hospitals. The two female victims were treated and released. Jason Green was admitted to a St. Louis area hospital.
Frank, of the 100 block of Concord Drive, has been charged with five counts of Aggravated Battery.  A Class 3 Felony could result in 5 to 10 years in prison. Bail was set at $75,000.

    I was there roughly 20 to 30 min before this happened and I even had talked with Alex for a few. He was in a good mood and was very proud of his new bicycle. Again, I wasn’t there at the time of the incident, but seems to me that he probably was provoked.

    I’m canceling my Herald subscription today – I’ve never seen such one sided journalism, reported before the facts are in.

    Yes there are two sides to every story and the true story has yet to be told – very biased journalism Herald, cancelling my subscription today. Guilty until proven innocent in this town.

    Are the injured and suspect local residents or visitors?

      I guess you didn’t read the story. It doesn’t give their address but it gave the answer

        I wonder what happened. Alex isn’t a naturally aggressive guy. Very chill and nice guy, yeah he’s a little weird but I feel something had to happen for him to do that. I’m not defending him or saying he’s guilty but sometimes the most quiet laid back people aren’t the people you’d wanna mess with…

          I agree with this

    I am praying for all concerned. This is sad for the residents of Mascoutah & people who frequent Skootr’s.
