| April 4, 2016


VALDOSTA – A Valdosta man was stabbed several times in front of his children Saturday, and police have a suspect in custody.

At approximately 7:35 p.m., a Valdosta Police Department patrol officer was flagged down by an individual at the intersection of North Troup Street and East Brookwood Drive, said to VPD Lt. Adam Bembry.

“When the patrol officer made contact with the citizen, he observed the citizen to be bleeding profusely from his torso. The patrol officer observed that the citizen had been stabbed multiple times,” Bembry said. “While providing emergency medical aid to the victim, officers on scene requested additional assistance from VPD detectives and Crime Scene Technicians from the Valdosta-Lowndes Regional Crime Laboratory.”

While investigating the incident, officers and detectives reportedly made contact with several witnesses in the area who assisted the officers in identifying the offender as Delvis Rosser, 42.

Investigators determined the victim and the Rosser were at Rosser’s residence in the 700 block of East Jane Street, when a verbal dispute occurred.

“Witnesses stated that the offender then stabbed the victim multiple times in front of the victim’s children,” Bembry said. “Officers responded to the offender’s residence where contact was made with Rosser who was immediately taken into custody.”

Due to the severity of injuries received, the victim was flown by helicopter to a local hospital for treatment. At this time he is listed in stable condition, Bembry said.

Rosser has been charged with Aggravated Assault, Possession of Knife During Commission Crime, and five counts of Cruelty to Children in the First Degree, reports stated.

Rosser is currently being held in the Lowndes County Jail.

“The Valdosta Police Department is proud of their officers for providing emergency care to the victim in this case and the rapid investigation which led to the arrest of the offender. VPD is equally grateful to the citizens who provided valuable information by cooperating with the investigation in assisting the officers in identifying the offender,” said Bembry.
