BREAKING NEWS: Stabbing Victim Saved At House Under Construction

ZEBULON - Pike County deputies responded to a call from a citizen this morning at a house under construction on Tanyard Road. The complainant had observed an unknown person inside the house on his surveillance system.

Lydell Holmes was located in the attic with a female that was injured.

For an unknown reason, Holmes also lit a blanket on fire while inside the home.

After Holmes was taken into custody, the extent of the female victim’s injuries became more apparent and emergency medical personnel responded to the scene. Several stab wounds were treated by EMS personnel and the victim was air lifted to Atlanta Medical Center. The victim also made statements to deputies that Holmes had forced her to leave her own residence with him while at knifepoint.

Holmes and the victim are familiar with one another due to an on going relationship between the two of them. Holmes is currently charged with aggravated assault, burglary, possession of a knife during commission of a crime, and arson.

Investigators are still working on this case and criminal charges maybe updated due to the findings.
