Gulfport stabbing suspect charged with aggravated assault


Gulfport police confirm the stabbing victim from a Tuesday night altercation at the Motel 6 did not suffer life threatening injuries.

The victim's name hasn't been released yet.

But, the name of the man who's now in jail has been released.  According to a Gulfport police spokesman, 34-year-old Edwin Carl Gossett has been charged with aggravated assault. 

Gossett reportedly stabbed the victim in a back room of the Highway 49 motel.  The victim then ran to the front check-in area before collapsing.

Police said the victim was taken to the hospital, and is now recovering from a series of stab wounds.

At the scene Tuesday night, investigators wouldn't say much about the victim or the alleged attacker.  But, we do know the two guests were staying in different rooms.
