ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla.—Deputies were called to a home on Colee Street in St. Augustine after two people were reportedly stabbed Tuesday afternoon and a person was taken into custody.
Covoz Vonte Byrd, 33, of N. 8th Street, was charged with two counts of aggravated battery and booked into the county jail after the cuttings.
When St. Johns County Sheriff's deputies arrived, they were told there may be two suspects and two victims. Both of the victims were taken to Flagler Hospital and one had to undergo surgery. Their injuries aren't life-threatening, deputies say.
Detectives investigated and identified Byrd as a person of interest in the case, brought him in for questioning and then charged him.
