Three stabbings occur in 24 hours

ALBANY, Ga. -- Whether an attacker swung a frying pan and a knife or a piece of glass, the result was a bleeding victim and an emergency response starting at 1:40 a.m. Wednesday, Albany Police Department reports stated.

The stabbing streak didn't end until 1:20 a.m. Thursday, the reports added.

In responding to a domestic violence aggravated assault dispatch on the 1400 block of Whispering Pines Road, officers found an attacker wielding a frying pan and a knife, said Phyllis Banks, police spokeswoman.

"The victim (Durell Brittingham, 25) and the suspect (Brittany Charmaine Clark, 21) were arguing when the suspect picked up a knife and a frying pan," Banks said. "The victim left the home."

Brittingham went to a friend's apartment with Clark on his trail, Banks said. Clark went into the residence and "attacked the victim with both the knife and the frying pan."

Brittingham suffered a stab wound to the shoulder, Banks said. No report on his condition was immediately available.

Clark was arrested and taken to Dougherty County Jail on charges of domestic violence aggravated assault, Banks added.

About 9 p.m. Wednesday, officers responded to a dispatch to a stabbing incident on the 600 block of Johnson Road.

"When officers arrived at the scene, they observed the victim (Malcolm Jamal Colbert, 20) lying on the ground, bleeding heavily," Banks said. "The victim stated that he was stabbed in the stomach with a knife by the suspect (Syennie Braithwaite, 30)."

Colbert was taken to the hospital, where he was treated and released, Banks said. The case remains under investigation, she added.

A third stabbing in the 24 hour period was a domestic incident, the police report stated.

After an argument, Audriana Jenkins, 21, the live-in girlfriend of Zantailus Mickens, 21, "stabbed him with a piece of glass," Banks said.

Mickens sustained wounds to the chest and left arm, Banks said. He was treated at the scene by Dougherty County EMS and released, Banks added.

This domestic violence aggravated assault case remains under investigation, Banks said.
