Arrests made in stabbing outside Chesterfield restaurant

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. -- One person was stabbed early Tuesday morning in the parking lot of a Chesterfield shopping center, according to Chesterfield Police. When officers arrived to the 13000 block of Hull Street Road, at about 2:06 a.m., they found a stabbing victim with serious injuries.

That victim was taken to the hospital.

Crime Insider sources said the stabbing happened in the parking lot of after the bar closed at the South Beach House restaurant located at 13923 Hull Street Road.

The stabbing stemmed from an argument in the parking lot apparently over a girl, according to sources.

Crime Insider sources confirmed police later spotted the two suspects on Interstate 95 near Route 10 shortly after the stabbing. CBS 6 has obtained the identity of one of the men who was arrested and charged with malicious wounding.

The names of those who were arrested would officially be released Wednesday, police said.

Managers at the South Beach House restaurant told employees there was an incident outside the establishment, however employees who spoke with CBS 6 were given no further details.

A woman who works nearby said the area can get loud late at night.

"They get rowdy  and there's a lot of swearwords and cuss words, " she said. "You really want to get out of here before they close down."

Uber driver Ben Bruce said he doesn't have issues when he picks up customers at the restaurant to take them to other bars.

"It's usually a pretty OK crowd," Bruce said. "It's a little surprising there was a stabbing there, but it's not overly surprising to be honest. I still think for the most part people are good people. I think sometimes they have too much to drink and make some poor decisions."
