Suspect Arrested in Fort Smith Stabbing
A 20-year-old Fort Smith man was arrested Monday (April 8) in connection with a stabbing last week.
Eddie Luangoudom was booked into the Sebastian County Detention Center on a first degree battery charge, according to police.
The victim of an April 1 stabbing identified Luangoudom from a lineup, according to police.
He was interviewed and arrested.
Police had been looking for a teenager after the incident last week.
Officers responded to an area in the 3500 block of North 26th Street around 6:16 a.m., after a male, described as a teen, allegedly stabbed 27-year-old David Rosa, a police report states.
Rosa walked out of his residence and found the male in his vehicle, but after a confrontation the suspect ran off, according to the police report.
The man found the suspect walking down the street and confronted him about property missing from the vehicle. The suspect then stabbed the man and ran off, police say.
Rosa was taken to a local hospital with a stab wound under his left arm. The stab wound clipped a major artery and Rosa had to undergo surgery, according to police. He has recovered.
A bloody knife and other evidence was located at the scene, police say.
