Greenville man stabbed in heated argument

An argument between two men escalated to the point that one of them was stabbed.

Marcus Crenshaw, a 23-year-old black male, stabbed Kevin Seale, a 29-year-old white male, following a heated altercation over an alleged dispute about money.

Greenville Police Department Captain Justin Lovvorn said that the two were riding in a vehicle together when the argument began at approximately 7:45 p.m. on March 17.

“They stopped at a residence on First Street, and the offender got out of the vehicle and went into the house,” Lovvorn said.

“When he came back out, he got into an altercation with the victim again and ended up stabbing him at least two different times—once in the thigh and once in the abdomen.”

Following Crenshaw’s flight from the scene, the police were notified and an ambulance transported Seale to L.V. Stabler’s emergency room, where it was discovered that Seale suffered a punctured lung as a result of the injury.

He was then transferred to Baptist South in Montgomery for further treatment.

“The next day, we checked on him and the doctors said that they had to inflate his lung, but they were able to get to it quickly enough to where it wasn’t life-threatening,” Lovvorn added.

“He was in stable condition, and has probably been released by now.”

Crenshaw’s getaway was short-lived, however, as Luverne Police Department officers located him later that night in Luverne and placed him under arrest for trespassing charges in addition to Greenville’s charge of first-degree assault.

“Until that’s cleared up or they waive extradition, we’ll just leave him there until he goes before the judge and have that taken care of,” Lovvorn said.

“But he has been served with our charges, as well.  It’s just a matter of when they release him so we can go get him.”
