A Niles man is facing multiple charges for stabbing a woman Saturday evening.

Niles Police say they were called to a home in the 400 block of South State Street around 6:50 p.m. about an apparent stabbing. When they arrived, police say they found a 29-year-old woman who had been stabbed in the chest and multiple times in both arms. She was taken to the hospital where she was last reported in stable condition.

Police say they entered the home in an attempt to find 40-year-old Edward Doran, who shared the home with the woman. Police say smelled natural gas and Doran told them he was going to blow up the house. Officers say they evacuated the home and neighbors. About 30 minutes later, Doran left the home and surrendered to police.

Doran was in court on Monday to be arraigned. He's charged with Attempted Murder, Aggravated Domestic Assault, Assault by Strangulation, Assault Causing Great Bodily Harm. He is currently being held at the Berrien County Jail.
