Stabbing suspect arrested

PRESS RELEASE Shreveport Police Department

A Shreveport man was taken into police custody Tuesday morning after a Caddo- Shreveport Crime Stoppers tip led to his arrest.

Just before 10:30 a.m., Shreveport police patrol officers responded to a suspicious person call near the intersection of Linwood Avenue at Argyle Street.

Information was presented to officers via a Crime Stoppers lead that a wanted stabbing suspect, 36-year-old Richard Mosley, had been spotted in the vicinity.

Upon a saturation of the area, officers were able to locate Mosley, who at the time of his arrest was observed on foot.

Mosley was promptly taken into custody without incident. He had been sought in connection with the stabbing of his wife, 35-year-old Nekedra Mosley, last weekend.

At about 2:19 a.m. Saturday, Shreveport patrol officers were dispatched to the 1100 block of West 70th Street in reference to a stabbing.

Upon arrival, patrolmen found Nekedra Mosley of Shreveport suffering from multiple lacerations to her upper torso and face.

The victim was subsequently transported to University Health Medical Center by Shreveport Fire Department personnel with what were described as lifethreatening injuries.

Upon further investigation, authorities discovered information to suggest that Mosley had been stabbed repeatedly by Richard Mosley, her estranged husband.

Investigators learned that the couple had been living separately for several months, during which time Richard Mosley reportedly stalked and threatened to kill his wife.

On Monday, investigators were successful in securing an arrest warrant for Richard Mosley.

Following Mosley’s arrest on Tuesday, he was booked into the Shreveport City Jail on the warrant charging him with a single count of attempted first-degree murder.

Mosley’s bond has been set at $200,000.
