Highlands Stabbing

Posted on 29th August 2011 at 08:04

A 14 year-old Longview Boy is under arrest on a first-degree assault charge, after he allegedly stabbed a man yesterday afternoon at a home in the 2400 hundred block of Alabama. Longview Police were called to the home at about 5:30 yesterday afternoon, where it was reported that a man had been stabbed in the rib area. Witnesses on the scene reported that the suspect had run to another nearby house, while family members took the victim to the hospital, where he was treated and released. Officers were directed to another house several blocks away, where the suspect was located and finally arrested at about 6:50 pm. They say that it looks like the victim and suspect had been walking down the street, apparently getting into some sort of dispute that eventually escalated into the stabbing. The teen was taken to the Juvenile Services Center, as the investigation into the incident continues.
