Police respond to stabbing, armed robbery in Albany

ALBANY, Ga. — Among the incidents the Albany Police Department responded to to early Sunday morning were a stabbing and an armed robbery.

At 725 E. Broad Ave., the site of Club Legend, there was an aggravated assault that took place just before 2:30 a.m. in which the victim went to the hospital with a stab wound, authorities say.

Officers responded to 2000 Palmyra Road, at Phoebe North, in reference to a stabbing. Upon their arrival, officers made contact with Danyale Starks, who APD said was the victim.

Starks stated that he and a female friend were at Club Legend when his wife showed up. He stated that he did not realize he had been stabbed in the leg by his wife until after he left the club and went to a relative’s home, reports stated. Starks drove himself to the hospital, where he was treated and released for a non-life-threatening injury, police officials said.

No charges had been filed as of Monday afternoon.

At 1 a.m., police responded to an armed robbery of a person in which a cell phone and cash were reportedly taken.

According to police reports, the location was 1823 Robinhood Road. The APD identified the victim as James Newman.

Officers responded to the location and made contact with Newman, who stated that he arrived home after purchasing some food, police reports said. When he stepped out of his van, according to the APD reports, a man armed with a gun approached him.

The suspect demanded Newman’s cell phone and money, then fled, police officials said.
