A malicious wounding charge has been certified to a grand jury against a 52-year-old man accused of stabbing another man in a wooded area off East Main Street in July.

A Pulaski County General District Court judge advanced the Class 2 felony charge against Dean Anthony Wall Tuesday. According to Pulaski Police Department Capt. Anthony Meredith, the stabbing victim, Toby Andrew Ratcliffe of Pulaski, was airlifted to a Roanoke hospital after sustaining multiple stab wounds.

Police were made aware of the situation when they received a 911 call of a male subject unresponsive and bleeding just before midnight July 18. Meredith said they responded to a wooded area in the 600 block of East Main Street and found Ratcliffe on the ground.

A preliminary investigation determined Ratcliffe and Wall “were engaged in an argument. As Mr. Ratcliffe lay on a mattress in a secluded area in the woods, Dean Wall stabbed him multiple times with a knife,” Meredith said.

Ratcliffe was able to get up and pursue Wall for about 150 feet down a trail before collapsing, according to Meredith. He said Ratcliffe used his cell phone to call 911 before going unresponsive.

Wall fled the scene into a wooded area, where he was located around 11 a.m. the next morning.

    there will be trouble there as long as the town allows the people to stay back there. I think they should stop it.
