TRUSSVILLE — The Trussville Police received a 911 call from a residence on Mack Roper Road at approximately 11:42 a.m. on Tuesday, November 2.
According to the Trussville Police Department, the victim stated that he had been stabbed multiple times by two offenders. Additionally, the victim provided Trussville Police Dispatch information such as a physical description of the offenders and the vehicle description that they fled the scene in.
Responding patrol units observed a vehicle that matched the BOLO around Sample Drive traveling north into downtown Trussville. When officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop, the suspect vehicle failed to stop. The suspect vehicle passed several safe locations to pull over and accelerated in an attempt to evade officers.
Trussville Police pursued the suspected offenders for approximately 1.5 miles. The pursuit ended when the driver of the fleeing vehicle lost control of the vehicle. The vehicle left the roadway and came to an uncontrolled final rest on the railroad tracks behind Golden Rule Bar-B-Que.
Officers cleared the vehicle and two adult females were detained. Also located in the vehicle was a female juvenile approximately 18 months old.
During the investigation, detectives learned that the offenders were responding to a Facebook Marketplace ad for a 2015 Nissan Altima listed for sale by the victim. The altercation occurred over the vehicle. Details of the altercation are still being investigated.
The victim was transported to a hospital for emergency medical treatment by Trussville Fire/Rescue for multiple stab wounds.
The juvenile was taken into protective custody and released to DHR to ensure the child had proper care.
The two suspects are being held at the Trussville City Jail while Detectives conduct their investigation. The evidence will be presented to the District Attorney’s Office, and official charges are expected soon.
The identities of the offenders will be released once warrants are obtained.
The story will be updated when more information becomes available.
