Virginia stabbing suspect caught

According to the U.S. Navy captain, a fellow service member on a Virginia naval base was stabbed and after they hunted for a day, they finally found the suspect and have taken him under custody. Capt. Michael "Jake" Johannson, commanding officer for Naval Support Activity Hampton Roads has stated that the suspect who is Petty Officer 3rd Class Wilbur Harwell, was apprehended "without incident" in Virginia Beach. There were details provided by the Navy captain regarding how Harwell was able to travel 20 miles east, from where the stabbing occurred at the Portsmouth annex, to Virginia Beach.

"It's a good news story how it ended," Johannson said. But he also believes that things had gone from worse to ugly earlier in the day. It all started with a stabbing around 8:30 a.m. in front of the private military store, or exchange, at the base. And after this incident, there was an alleged altercation between the 26-year-old Harwell and another enlisted officer, whom Johannson identified as Petty Officer 2nd Class Justin Powell. The Navy captain stated that Powell had been stabled multiple times. With the help of assistance from federal, state and local authorities, the Navy officials were quick to respond and they instantly sprung into action.

Soon after they learned about the incident, they set off to look for Harwell and they also had to ensure that the surrounding area was secure. "We locked down the base as soon as we knew there was a stabbing incident," Johannson said. Powell at the moment remains in hospital in a critical condition after undergoing a surgery.
