Police seek info on stabbing, robbery

MERIDIAN — By Brandon Ward


    Meridian police are continuing to investigate a stabbing and a robbery, both of which occurred over the holiday weekend.

    The stabbing happened Saturday night around 11 p.m., Meridian Police Department Detective Dareall Thompson said.

    "A male victim was stabbed in the area of Sowashee Court Apartments near a basketball court," Thompson said. "The suspects are three black males, who fled on foot after the incident."

    Thompson said the stabbing victim was transported to a local hospital where his injuries where determined to be non life-threatening.

    "We don't know the motive for the stabbing," Thompson said. "No money was taken from the victim, but the case is still open and we are continuing to gather information."

    The robbery happened around 1 a.m. Sunday morning.

    Thompson said the female victim was leaving the Waffle House near Bonita when she was assaulted by a black male in the parking lot.

    "The black male fled in a white four door, unknown year or model, after assaulting and robbing the victim," Thompson said. "The vehicle was also carrying another black male and a black female."

    Thompson said no weapons were involved in the robbery and said the woman's injuries were not life-threatening.

    Police are still looking for the suspects in both the stabbing and the robbery, Thompson said.

    Detectives ask anyone who has information about either of the incidents to call the Meridian Police Department at 601-485-1893, 601-485-1859, 311, or call Crime Stoppers at 601-485-1860.
