A 45-year-old man is being held without bond in connection with a stabbing in the West End on Saturday evening, according to the Alexandria Police Department.

Police were dispatched just before 6 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 4, to the ninth floor of an apartment building in the 300 block of S. Reynolds Street for a report of shots fired and found the victim suffering from a non-lethal stab wound to the midsection.

The suspect, Akkeim Edwards, was arrested without incident and charged with felonious assault. He goes to court for the incident on March 15.

Edwards was sentenced to 90 days in the Alexandria jail for indecent exposure in 2011, with a year suspended. He was also found guilty of trespassing in 2020, and spent two months in jail, with two years of supervised probation, according to court records.

The incident is still under investigation, police said, and anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Edmund Dougherty at 703-746-6697, email at [email protected], or by calling the Alexandria Police Department non-emergency number at 703-746-44444. Callers can remain anonymous.
