PHOENIX – A Yavapai County man suspected of stabbing his brother with a hunting knife has been arrested by Phoenix police officers.

Anthony Lamon Jr., 24, is accused of stabbing his 22-year-old brother Thursday night.

The brother told sheriff's deputies that Lamon stabbed him in the back and slashed his left arm during an argument at their home in Congress.

According to the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office, the victim noted that as he ran from the home, Lamon was grabbing a hatchet, intending to continue the assault.

Lamon fled the scene and deputies were told that he was planning to visit his grandmother, who was being treated in a Phoenix-area hospital.

He was spotted at the hospital on Friday but fled when approached by security.

The sheriff's office was notified of Lamon's arrest late Monday. Further information about his arrest is expected to be released sometime Tuesday.

The victim's injuries were not life-threatening and he has since been released from the hospital to recover at home.
