Winder Police responded to the stabbing of a 21-year-old male that occurred on Sunday evening at a residence located in the 200 block of Russell Road in Winder at approximately 4:30 pm.
According to information received by investigators for the Winder Police Department, a family gathering was taking place at the residence when the incident occurred. The 21-year-old victim became involved in an argument with his 16-year-old brother, which later turned physical. The dispute moved to an area within the home where other family members were not present. The 16-year-old was in possession of a knife that investigators believe was taken from the kitchen of the home, where the argument apparently began. Officers were called to the scene when the 21-year-old went outside to get his father while holding his stomach after having been stabbed.
An ambulance was called to the scene and transported the victim to a nearby hospital where he underwent surgery for the injury. The injury is not believed to be life threatening and the victim is expected to make a full recovery according to information received by police. The juvenile is being charged with aggravated assault through the juvenile court of Barrow County.
