Stabbings under investigation in Americus

Americus police are currently investigating two separate stabbings.  Both incidents took place around nine o'clock Sunday night.

Joseph White Junior is wanted on aggravated assault charges in the first one that happened at a boarding home on South Jackson Street. 

 Rodrick Johnson flagged down a police officer and told the officer that he had just been stabbed by White.

 Police are still looking for White and say incidents like this are concerning.

"Stabbings or shootings, those are very concerning to residents here in our neighborhood and we want to do all that we possibly can to ensure to our citizens that we are actively patrolling and trying to prevent these kinds of instances from occurring, says Herman Lamar, Interim Police Chief for the Americus Police Department.
 

The second incident happened just after 9:30 at Weeks Mobile Homes. The victim in the case refuses to cooperate, so police have not made any arrests in that case.
