Stabbing Incident Still Under Investigation

Cookeville police are continuing to investigate a stabbing incident in which a local resident was seriously injured over the weekend. Police say they are looking for witnesses who may be able to provide information about the stabbing of 42-year-old Marlin Glenn Wallace of Baxter. They say Wallace was apparently stabbed during an altercation on Minnear Street in Cookeville about 3 am Saturday. Officers arrived to find him lying on a concrete patio and bleeding from stab wounds to the neck and back. A resident of the home told police that he "didn't see anything and didn't know anything" about how Wallace came to be injured.
