STAFFORD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — A juvenile has been arrested in connection to a double stabbing that happened last week in Stafford County.
According to a press release, on March 20 at 9:09 p.m., deputies responded to McDonald’s at 190 Garrionsville Rd for a report of a stabbing. Once authorities arrived, they located a 19-year-old male victim with multiple stab wounds.
The victim was transported to a nearby hospital with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.
As deputies were responding to this call, the Emergency Communications Center received another report about a second victim suffering from multiple stab wounds.
