Teen turns himself in for stabbing

ALBANY, Ga. - The 16-year-old who is suspected of stabbing his uncle during an altercation on Sunday has turned himself in, officials with the Albany Police Department said Monday.

The teen called from 1112 Peachtree Terrace Sunday at about 10 p.m. and turned himself in, said Phyllis Banks, a spokeswoman for the APD.

The teenager had been wanted since he got into an argument with his uncle, 38-year-old Ron Lamb, and reportedly stabbed him in the back at 1209 Seventh Ave. at 4:20 p.m. Sunday, police officials said.

The suspect, described as a biracial male about 5-foot, 6-inches tall and 160 pounds with a small Afro, was last seen wearing a brown shirt when he fled the scene. The victim was taken to a hospital.

A spokesman for Phoebe North said Lamb had been at the hospital Sunday before being treated and released.
