NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — A Norfolk man has been charged with malicious wounding in connection with a stabbing on Avon Road.

Police responded to the call around 3 a.m. Thursday for a report of two stabbing victims. When officers arrived in the 6300 block of Avon Road, they found two adult men inside a home suffering from non life- threatening stab wounds.

One 54-year-old man was transported to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital. The other man, James William Miles, 55, was treated at Bon Secours DePaul Medical Center.
