Suspect wanted in USM campus stabbing

Authorities with The University of Southern Mississippi are searching the area off campus near Reed Green Coliseum for a suspect wanted for aggravated assault with a knife on campus. 

The university sent out an Eagle Alert Tuesday morning about an incident at the coliseum. University Police said they received a call concerning a fight.

Police added that two men who may have been relatives began fighting during the Pace Headstart Graduation Program. Police broke up the fight, and the suspect left. The suspect then returned to the north side of the Coliseum when he allegedly stabbed the other man in the face.

The suspect is described as a black male of slender build, with braided hair, barefooted, with an orange/gray shirt and plaid shorts.

Authorities say the suspect was last seen heading southwest off of campus. The alert said the parties involved were not students and that the suspect is no longer a threat to campus.
