BAY COUNTY, FL – The Bay County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call reporting a stabbing on October 12th at about 10:22 at a residence on Cherokee Heights Road. One person has been arrested.

Deputies arrived at the home to find a male victim bleeding heavily. The victim had puncture wounds to his back. The victim claimed to have been stabbed as he stood in his driveway. BCSO Criminal Investigations, Crime Scene, and EMS responded quickly to the scene. As he was being placed in the ambulance, the victim told deputies his daughter was in the home.

Deputies found a young child in the home. As they found the child, her older brother arrived at the home. Deputies discovered a trail of blood through the house to the backdoor. After clearing the home and making sure no one was inside and also injured, deputies went into the backyard and found a woman laying on her side in the grass. She had a massive amount of bloodstains on her shirt and deputies initially thought she was also stabbed but she wasn’t. She appeared intoxicated and was verbally uncooperative.
