Police Investigate double stabbing in Chickasha
CHICKASHA, Okla. — Police in Chickasha are investigating a double stabbing that sent one victim to the hospital.
There were two victims and two suspects in the case. Witnesses say they heard screaming coming from outside their home.
“The light of the alley hit him just right, and I saw his whole body covered in blood,” neighbor Robert Young said.
Young said he was able to get a closer look at his neighbor who lives next door and called 911 immediately.
“He got stabbed six times,” he said. “He got sliced open right here. His face got sliced open. He got stabbed twice in the arm and twice in the leg.”
Young says he did not get a good description of the suspects, but says one of them had a pretty memorable nickname.
“One dude’s nickname was Cheeto or Tito or something like that,” he said.
And he was right. Police say Charles “Cheeto” Wilson and Troy Morgan are the suspects and forced their way into the victim’s home.
“We have the victims saying that the suspects broke into the house at which point a fight ensued,” Chickasha Police Detective John Young said. “They continued outside the house. They were able to chase the suspects down at which point we had two men who pulled two knives on two victims.”
Police tracked down the two after following evidence left behind on the ground including one of the knives used in the attack.
“One of the victims had to be Medi-flighted to Oklahoma City due to the severity of his injuries,” Detective John Young said. “He’s expected to make a full recovery.”
Police say the second victim in this case was treated at the scene. The suspects are now facing criminal charges.
