Stabbing leaves victim injured, teen behind bars


 Police detectives have arrested a juvenile in connection with a stabbing that occurred Thursday morning in west Shreveport.

At approximately 9:24 a.m. on October 31, 2013, Shreveport Police patrol officers were dispatched to a home in the 6300 block of Tinker Street relative to a stabbing. Upon arrival patrolmen found 32 year old Brad Stephens suffering from multiple stab wounds to his torso and a laceration to his face. Stephens was subsequently transported to University Health Center by the Shreveport Fire Department with what has been described as a non-life-threatening injury.

Detectives immediately responded to the scene of the crime and, upon further investigation, discovered Stephens and a family member, later identified as a 13 year old male, were involved in some sort of altercation that culminated in a physical encounter during which the juvenile allegedly produced a knife and attacked the victim. Authorities immediately took the teenager into custody and he has been booked into the Caddo Parish Juvenile Detention Center on one count of aggravated battery.

One million dollars down the drain to pay for a special session of the Louisiana legislature. And all for naught. The governor is hollering that the financial sky is falling and the state is in dire fiscal straights. Legislators protest that their hands are tied by too many constitutional dedications.

It was much to my amazement that literally hundreds of Ukrainian girls were actually interested in me. Throughout each day, I would receive e-mails from the agency, with each e-mail sending a message from a woman interested in dating me.
