Two people were hurt early Thursday morning in a stabbing incident at an apartment complex in Tuscaloosa, police sources have confirmed.
Stephanie Taylor, a spokesperson for the Tuscaloosa Police Department, said officers were called to Forester Gardens apartments off James I. Harrison, Jr. Parkway when a resident there reported an unwanted visitor who would not leave the area.
The call came in shortly after 8 a.m. Thursday, Taylor said.
While the complainant was on the phone with police dispatchers, the dispute at the apartment reportedly escalated until the suspect, 35-year-old Pasha LaKeith Darget, grabbed a knife and cut two people on the scene.
Darget was taken into custody shortly afterward and charged with second-degree assault and domestic violence assault.
He was placed in the Tuscaloosa County Jail, where his combined bond was set at $8,500.
It was not immediately clear who was hurt in the incident, but investigators said their injuries were minor and the case is being handled by TPD’s patrol division, not the multi-agency Tuscaloosa Violent Crimes Unit.
