The Athens Police Department says it found a stabbing suspect hiding under a porch.
About 2:40 a.m. Saturday, officers responded to a fight call in the 19,000 block of Runway Street, said Athens Police Chief Floyd Johnson
Johnson said the 60-year-old victim had been cut in the lower abdomen. He was transported to Huntsville Hospital by Athens Limestone Ambulance Service.
Investigators believe the assault was the result of a fight over a cell phone. Officers later located Jeffery Ryan Solomon under a neighbor’s porch.
Solomon was arrested for second-degree assault and taken to the county jail, Johnson said.
