Trent Brock, 17, of 1136 Flagstone Road was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, aggravated battery and possession of a knife during the commission of a felony in connection with a stabbing incident that occurred at 12:55 a.m. Friday morning. 

According to an incident reported released by the sheriff’s office, the victim was 26-year-old David Bray of a Brewers Mill Road address. 

Chief Investigator Darren Scarborough said that the victim was stabbed at least five times in the back. 

“There have been some conflicting stories, but the suspect [Brock] was arrested on a warrant Friday afternoon.”

Deputies responded to Flagstone Road in the early hours Friday morning “in reference to a man lying in the road with possible kidney problems,” according to the report. 

The victim was transported to Athens Regional Hospital following the incident.

Scarborough reported that as of Friday afternoon, the victim was still admitted into the hospital but was “conscious and alert.”
