A male was stabbed in a fight Sunday afternoon at an Alcorn County residence, according to Sheriff Ben Caldwell.
The male who was stabbed was transported to Magnolia Regional Health Center, and his condition was unknown Sunday night. The suspect was arrested at the residence and transported to the Alcorn County Jail.
Deputies responded to the fight around 3:30 p.m. at the 45 County Road 718 residence, Caldwell added. It was discovered that two males had been involved in an altercation in the yard.
