Bay County Stabbing

BAY COUNTY-- Bay County Sheriff's Deputies say they've arrested a suspect in an afternoon stabbing.

It happened about 3:30pm Wednesday afternoon in an alleyway between Kimbrel and Georgia Avenues in Callaway.

Investigators say the 43 year old victim was walking with 22 year old Craig Douglas Baller when they got into an argument.

They say Baller told them he and his mother are visiting from Crestview and the victim made inappropriate comments about her.

That's when Baller allegedly pulled a knife and stabbed the man in the neck.

The victim was able to get to a nearby home and ask for help.

Paramedics took him to the hospital for treatment.

Baller was booked into the Bay County Jail on one count of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

He's due in court Thursday for a bond hearing.
