PETAL, MS (WDAM) -

Petal police are investigating a double-stabbing that injured two people Wednesday afternoon.

Officers responded to a home on Hegwood Drive in Petal just before 6 p.m. according to Petal Police Detective Sammy Ray.

"When officers arrived, they found two men, suffering from multiple stab wounds," said Ray. "Through our investigation we were able to determine that 53-year-old Nathan Odom stabbed Chaz Williams, 24, and his brother Dustin Williams, 18."

He was caught shortly after on 8th Avenue in Petal, without incident according to Ray.

Both Dustin and Chaz were transported to Forrest General Hospital where they are listed in stable condition.

Bond was set for Odom at $2,000. 

The scene: 

"Odom was also transported to a local hospital, and treated for injuries, but no stab wounds," said Ray. "This was an isolated incident, the victims and the suspect knew one another."

Ray added that the incident stemmed from an argument at a party that was going on at the residence.

Odom was booked at the Forrest County Jail and charged with two counts of aggravated assault. Other charges may follow, pending the investigation according to Ray.
