Witness gives account of deadly Richmond stabbing

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

We are getting a disturbing witness account of the moments following a double stabbing on Richmond's Northside.

Two females were stabbed. One of them died. We spoke to the men who called 911 and ultimately appear to have saved a life. It happened off Chamberlayne Avenue at the Chamberlayne Gardens
Apartments.

"All I can say," said Michael Moseley. "It was a tragedy"

Moselely was there before police arrived to find a fatal double stabbing scene.

"I still have the blood on my jacket," said Michael.

Two females who worked in the rental office were stabbed. One of them came running toward Michael for help.

"She ran up to me and she grabbed me," said Michael. "I saw her face and it was cut up pretty bad."

The victim fell to the ground.

"I really didn't know what to do at the time," said Michael. "It was shocking. I took my jacket off, and I layed down with her. She was like I'm fine."

The worker told Michael to run in the office and check on a second victim.

"As I walked into the rental office," recalled Michael. "It was blood everywhere."

Police would later hold a news conference confirming one of the victims died. Michael new the wounds would be fatal.

"I touched her chest," said Michael. "No breathing. They told me to lay her on her back, and as I did her neck went to the side and there was a big hole. It was gashed open."

This is Richmond's 35th homicide of the year.

"I wish I could have saved two lives instead of one," said Michael. "That is something that is going to sit on my chest forever."

But Alicia Raisin with Richmond's Citizen's Against Crime is calling Michael and his friend Greg heroes.

"And I thank God for both of them," said Raisin.

It was a team effort.

"God brought us there for a reason," said Greg. "I wouldn't say it was being a hero. I look at it as helping somebody that was in need."

Ultimately, two men ran into a blood stained office not knowing who or what they would encounter.

"He had my back," said Michael. "I had his front. It was time to save somebody. It was time."

Michael says his father was also stabbed to death when he was 5-years-old. A security company has been hired to patrol the apartments 24 hours a day.

Police need your help identifying suspects. If you have any information call Crime Stoppers at 804-780-1000.
