Three people were stabbed at a family gathering in Cherry Tree Crossing shortly after midnight Sunday, according to a Richmond County Sheriff's Office report.

It began when a woman and a man became involved in an argument and the woman's boyfriend tried to defend her. The boyfriend began arguing with a different woman and pushed her to the ground, according to the report.

That woman's brother began fighting with the boyfriend for pushing his sister and two other men also joined the fight, according to the report.

The boyfriend pulled out a knife and cut the second woman's brother across the length of his stomach, and both men who joined in the fracas - one in the right upper chest and the other on the right rear shoulder, side and buttocks.

The wounded were taken to University Hospital. According to Richmond County Sheriff's Capt. Scott Gay, two victims were in stable condition Sunday and one was in critical condition.

If you live rent free...what

If you live rent free...what is there to be so angry about? I guess if those folks had a mortgage, they would all be serial killers.

Is it really rent free???

Is it really rent free??? More like reduced rent and good behavior, among other things .... I don't think the American economy could support that

I am SURE they will be evicted, as they should be.

Couldn't this have happened in any American home during a family gathering... in other words let's not blow this up simply because it happened in Cherry Tree Crossings...it could have happened anywhere.

when is someone going to wake

when is someone going to wake up and realize that they need to
monitor this place 24/7....it seems that no place else in augusta has this much violence continuously.....the people I feel sorry for are the health care workers and emt's that have to deal with all this...... someone i know had a sick relative and was in the er when all of these clowns came in.... she told me that the car looked like someone had taken a blood bath in it and just think health care workers have to assist them.. now that is a job that requires true dedication. Also it would be less costly for the county and the health care system if they just put an ER sub station in Cherry Tree Xing for incidents such as these.

"Evicted??? Dont think the American economy could support this???" haha Someone has no idea how the system works. We do this everyday for millions of able bodied people who pride themselves on living off of tax paying citizens and do nothing more than make more dependants.

AMNESTY! Our laws on assault

AMNESTY! Our laws on assault have not kept up with the changing times. They,along with immigration laws,MUST be repealed. It is unfair to target these criminals.

I could have guessed where

I could have guessed where this happend before I opened the headline. I have been to family gatherings and never had cross words so ilove this is not a normal reaction to an arguement or an evereyday happening at a family gathering. It is a reaction of people that do not know how to handle disagreements and a reaction learned after several generations who think this is an acceptable way to act.
