Cops: Man stabs victim who accused him of burglarizing his car
Dave Cohen Reporting
Slidell cops say a dispute over an alleged car burglary ended with a stabbing.
"Shortly after 9 p.m. last night (Sunday, January 19), Slidell Police responded to a disturbance at the corner of Joy Dr. and Lori Dr.," Detective Daniel Seuzeneau said in a news release. "When police arrived, they discovered a large amount of blood in the street, and a 23-year-old victim with several stab wounds."
Investigators say the suspect was not there when officers arrived in the Breckenridge Subdivision.
"The suspect, 29-year-old Anthony Davis (above), fled the scene," according to Seuzeneau. "The dispute started over the fact that Davis allegedly broke into the victim's vehicle the night before."
He explained that the victim and the suspect live just down the street from one another.
"The victim... confronted Davis about the burglary. The discussion became heated resulting in Davis wielding a knife. Davis then began to repeatedly stab the victim; causing near fatal wounds."
Seuzeneau says Slidell Police used a K-9 officer to track the suspect.
"Davis surrendered peacefully, and was taken into custody without incident. The victim, whose name is not being released, was transported to University Hospital and is currently listed in critical condition. Davis was charged with Attempted Second Degree Murder."
