Suspect in custody for Locust Street stabbings



Listen to this article

Levon Pinkney, 32, is in custody in connection to two stabbing incidents that occurred on Locust Street Saturday night, according to Police Chief Penny Jones.

Pinkney is expected to make his initial court appearance on Monday, where he will be officially charged and a judge will determine bond conditions.

At around 10:30 p.m. Saturday, police and medics responded to 1318 Locust Street, where Donny Myers had been stabbed once in the chest. An hour later, Michael Curtis called 911 from the same location and advised that he had also been stabbed by Pinkney.

Curtis was treated and released from the hospital.  Myers remains at UMMC, though Chief Jones reports that his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

The Vicksburg Daily News will continue to provide updates as information becomes available.
