Suspect held in death of Two Rivers man

An assault followed by a traffic crash in Two Rivers left a 34-year old man dead & a 54-year old man in the Manitowoc County Jail. Police Chief Joseph Collins said the victim, identified as Koyoko Perry, had been stabbed prior to the crash at about 3:00 a.m. Sunday.

“The stabbing actually occurred outside of the vehicle, and after the stabbing the victim got back into the vehicle and tried to drive away from the scene,” Collins said. Perry’s vehicle veered off the street into a driveway and struck vehicles parked there. Perry was taken to the hospital where he later died of his injuries. Charges against the other man are being reviewed. Police aren’t releasing details about the interaction between the two men, characterizing it as a domestic dispute.
