SUFFOLK, Va. - Suffolk Police issued arrest warrants for a 28-year-old suspect in connection with a stabbing and robbery incident that occurred at a home in the 200 block of Pinner Street on Thursday, January 6.
28-year-old Preston Davis was wanted on charges for this incident and on January 15 Suffolk Police said he was arrested on charges of Robbery, Felonious Assault, Damage Telephone Line, Etc. to Prevent Summoning Law Enforcement and Suspended Sentence Violation.
Dispatch was notified of the incident at 3:19 p.m., on January 6.
Teresa Berry lives across the street. She says she came out to get her mail and saw her neighborhood surrounded by police.
“The police was parked in front of my house,” said Berry. “They was over there; they was over there. They were everywhere.”
An officer responded to Sentara Obici Hospital; the victim was transported by private vehicle to that location. His injuries are considered serious but not critical.
The victim was later transported to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital.
Officers located the crime scene at the Pinner Street home and spoke with a female victim who lives there. She reported that she and the other male victim had come in contact with an unknown male, who police identified as Davis, inside her home.
It’s unclear how the intruder got into the home, but police said the two people who encountered him inside the home didn’t know him.
Following a verbal argument between the three parties, the two males left the home and continued the argument outside during which time Davis reportedly stabbed the male victim.
Before leaving the scene, Davis took the female’s phone, police say.
Berry, the neighbor who knows the woman who lives there, is disturbed by the entire incident.
"They don't bother nobody,” Berry said. “They work hard for the little stuff they do got, and it's wrong for somebody to just come take somebody's stuff or rob somebody like that.”
Meantime, the man who was badly hurt, has been released from the hospital.
No other injuries were reported.
“I just pray for them, hope they get better or whatever,” said Berry. “I don't know, but this stuff really do need to stop. There’s kids around here.”
