VAN BUREN (KFSM) -- Deputies with the Crawford County Sheriff's Office arrested the second of two stabbing suspects early Saturday morning (May 27), Sheriff Ron Brown said. The other suspect was taken into custody shortly after the alleged crime happened.

The suspects are brothers Woodson Anthony Wilkerson and Gerald William Wilkerson.

Deputies responded to the 1900 block of N 24th Street after Sparks Hospital contacted the Van Buren Police Department letting them know they had a stabbing victim.

"It's my understanding that they attacked our victim with a machete. He suffers from several lacerations and several stab wounds," said Crawford County Sheriff Ron Brown.

The sheriff's office became involved when they realized the stabbing may have happened in the county's jurisdiction.

The deputies searched the home, but did not find anyone inside.
