Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre reported the arrest of a Thibodaux man on Friday night after he allegedly stabbed a man in the chest with a knife hours after stabbing him with a kitchen fork. Detectives arrested Malcolm Green (B/M, D.O.B. 03/15/88) of 525 Karla Drive following an investigation into the incident.
At around 9 p.m. on Friday, March 8, deputies responded to the area of Carol Street in Thibodaux after receiving a call from a man stating he had been stabbed. Upon arrival, deputies noticed the victim was bleeding from an apparent stab wound to his chest and learned Malcolm Green had allegedly stabbed the man during an argument. EMTs with Acadian Ambulance also responded to the scene and began treating the victim’s wound. During that time, Green, who had been hiding under a nearby residence, arrived on scene and was detained. The victim was eventually transported to a local hospital after it was discovered he had suffered a punctured lung. He was treated and subsequently released.
Detectives arrived on scene and questioned Green. Green told deputies he and the victim were in a verbal argument which turned into a physical altercation. Green told detectives he stabbed the victim with a fork during the fight. Detectives recovered the fork in front of a Carol Street residence where the entire incident occurred, and also discovered a kitchen knife with a blade measuring approximately eight inches in length.
Through investigation, detectives learned there had been two separate physical altercations between the two men that day. During the first, Green allegedly used the fork to stab the victim twice near his stomach causing only minor lacerations. Then nearly three hours later, detectives learned Green returned to the Carol Street residence and allegedly smashed the windshield of the victim’s vehicle. The victim had begun to approach Green at that time, but Green then produced a knife and allegedly used it to slash the victim’s wrist and stab him in the chest.
When questioned about the knife, Green refused to cooperate further with the investigation. He was arrested and charged with aggravated second degree battery and simple criminal damage to property. He was transported to the Lafourche Parish Detention Center in Thibodaux where he is currently being held in lieu of $100,500 bond as set by Judge Ashly Bruce Simpson.
