UPDATE: Three Arrested In Overnight Stabbings

Knoxville (WVLT) -- Three people have been arrested in connection with two early morning stabbings.

Robert King, 18, of New York, Francisco Tessiegrant, 40, of Boston and Anthony Gray, 24, of Knoxville have all been charged with especially aggravated kidnapping and attempted first degree murder.

The first happened around 3:00 Tuesday morning.

Police were called out to the Saint Mary’s emergency room where a man was being treated for superficial stab wounds.

That man was Gray.

About an hour later, James R. Mobely, 18, was found stabbed on McGhee Avenue, behind the Salvation Army Thrift Store.

He was taken to UT Medical Center, where he's listed in serious condition.

The investigation is still on-going.
