A Toano man and his daughter are in jail in connection with the stabbing of two people — one being stabbed 13 times — in August, James City County Police said.
Police are asking the public for help in identifying a third suspect.
Timothy Kelly, 52 and her 21-year-old daughter, Katherine Kelly, are each jailed on charges of robbery, felonious assault, malicious wounding, malicious wounding by mob, breaking and entering and conspiracy to commit a felony.
Katherine Kelly is being held in the Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail; Timothy Kelly was arrested Wednesday in Redondo Beach, California and is awaiting extradition. His mug shot was not immediately available Friday.
James City County Police said officers were called to 190 block of Lakeside Drive in Historic Powhatan Resort on Aug. 29 to investigate an assault report.
There, they found a 22-year-old Newport News man who had been stabbed 13 times. He was flown to VCU Medical Center with serious injuries – he has since been released, police said.
And then there’s a 21-year-old James City County man who suffered a minor stab wound to his shoulder. He refused treatment.
A police investigation indicated Katherine Kelly had been in the condo with the two men earlier that evening but had left following an argument.
She returned a few minutes later with her father, Timothy Kelly, and an unidentified man. The three arrived at the condo and knocked on the door.
“As the door began to open, Timothy Kelly forced his way in and attacked the 22-year-old victim stabbing him 13 times,” police said in a news release. “The 21-year-old victim had been inside the condo and attempted to break up the fight. He received one stab wound to his shoulder.”
The unidentified man grabbed a bag containing a gaming system and the trio fled the area, police said.
Authorities are asking anyone who may have information about the incident, especially the identity and whereabouts of the third suspect, to call Officer Logan English at 757-603-6033 or firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Crime Line at 888-LOCK-U-UP.
