Update: Man stabbed 8 times after apartment invasion in Gray

A Washington County man was stabbed eight times in the lower back after allegedly breaking into a Gray apartment and getting into an argument with the resident Wednesday night.

It happened around 10 p.m. Wednesday at 131 Bob Fitz Road #5, according to Washington County Sheriff Ed Graybeal, but no charges were filed in the case yet.  Officers were sent to the scene after a call to 911 about a man who had been stabbed.

The victim, Cody Honeycutt, 21, 11 Welcome Court, Gray, is accused if forcing his way into the Bob Fitz Road apartment where Robert Rose, 23, lives. Investigator Sgt. Sam Phillips said the men got into a physical altercation that continued to the parking lot where Rose stabbed Honeycutt.

Phillips said Honeycutt's injuries were not life threatening, but he did undergo surgery to repair the injuries.

According to Phillips, the case will be presented at the next meeting of the Washington County grand jury. 

"We're still trying to determine what happened," Phillips said.

Witnesses are still being interviewed, but the sheriff's office asked if anyone has further information about the incident to contact investigators at 788-1414.
