LENOIR CITY, Tenn. (WVLT) - A man was stabbed multiple times in Lenoir City on Saturday, according to the Loudon County Sheriff’s Office.
At around 9:30 a.m., LCSO deputies responded to the 1600 block of Old Highway 95 after hearing a man had been stabbed.
While deputies were on their way to the house, they discovered that the suspect in the stabbing, later identified as Davis Ellis of Oneida, had left the house and was threatening to jump from a bridge on I-75 North near the 80-mile marker, which is around a mile away.
Deputies responded to both locations, and the victim, later identified as Cody Graves of Knoxville, was transported to the University of Tennessee Medical Center where he is listed as stable.
The interstate was shut down in both directions for about 30 minutes while LCSO deputies and negotiators were able to take the suspect into custody.
Ellis was charged with attempted first-degree murder and aggravated domestic assault.
LCSO officials said that Graves is still in critical condition at UTMC.
