Authorities say a 19-year-old man called 911 to report that he stabbed another man after attempting to rob a gas station in western Michigan.

The Ottawa County sheriff's department says the Hudsonville man was carrying a knife when he entered the station in Blendon Township on Monday evening.

Investigators say he demanded cash from two workers who fled the station before he stabbed a customer.

The man who was stabbed is identified as a 38-year-old from Hudsonville.

He was taken to a hospital for treatment and was expected to survive.

The stabbing suspect, whose name wasn't immediately released, was arrested without incident after deputies responded.

Formal charges are expected Tuesday.
