Virginia stabbing suspect apprehended near hospital

PORTSMOUTH, Virginia--A man suspected of repeatedly stabbing a fellow sailor near a naval hospital was arrested Friday, ending an hours-long manhunt, according to the Navy.

Petty Officer 3rd Class Wilbur Harwell got into a morning argument with a fellow service member outside the Navy Exchange at Naval Support Activity Hampton Roads, Portsmouth Annex, the Navy said.

He was apprehended later in nearby Virginia Beach, said Capt. Michael “Jake” Johansson, commanding officer of Naval Support Activity Hampton Roads. It wasn't immediately clear when Harwell, 26, left the installation or how he did so. Johansson said the facility was placed on lockdown as soon as officials learned about the stabbing.
