Man wanted after allegedly stabbing brother



Yavapai County Sheriff's Office deputies are searching for Anthony Russell Lamon Jr., 24, of Congress, accused of stabbing his 22-year-old brother Thursday night.

Lamon is wanted on a $100,000 warrant for allegedly stabbing his brother in the back and arm with a hunting knife.

By the time deputies arrived at the scene of the alleged attack on the 22000 block of Painted Acres Lane, the suspect had fled the scene.

The victim was treated at the scene and airlifted to a Phoenix hospital. He has since been released from the hospital. According to medical personnel, some stab wounds came very close to vital organs and considering the circumstances, the victim was fortunate.

According to the YCSO, the suspect was last seen driving a white 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee belonging to his grandmother.

The sheriff's department asks anyone with information as to Anthony Lamon Jr.'s whereabouts to call the YCSO at 928-771-3260 or Yavapai Silent Witness at 1-800-932-3232. Calls to Silent Witness with information leading to Lamon's arrest are eligible for a cash reward.
