Man Stabbed on Palm Coast’s Zenoble Place, Site of Numerous Previous Arrests
FlaglerLive | July 14, 2016
Flagler County Sheriff’s detectives are investigating the stabbing of a man on 14 Zenoble Place in Palm Coast Wednesday afternoon or evening.
The man was stabbed in the neck, a sheriff’s spokesman said, but little else is known about the circumstances that led to the incident. “He wasn’t saying who stabbed him, not giving information,” the spokesman said. The identity of the man has not yet been released.
The man, in his 30s, was taken to Halifax hospital in Daytona Beach: any penetrating wound to the head, neck or torso is automatically a trauma case. Florida Hospital Flagler does not have a trauma unit.
Authorities arrived on a messy, bloody scene at Zenoble Place once the call to 911 was placed. Blood had splattered in numerous places, brass knuckles were found at the entrance, holes had been punched in the doors, broken glass littered the floor, all evidence of a violent fight. There were numerous people in the house, with about a dozen people present when authorities were there, though not all were necessarily residents of the house.
It’s not clear when the stabbing occurred, as some told authorities that it had occurred in late afternoon, others that it occurred around 10 p.m. But those involved would not say anything revealing to police.
The address is familiar to the sheriff’s office: it has responded there numerous times over the years, and made five arrests there in the past two years alone. Four of those arrests were of Jessica Holliday, 28, for criminal mischief, probation violation, fleeing and eluding police, violating a pre-trial release agreement, and domestic battery by strangulation. The latter charge, a felony, was dropped last year. She was also charged with tampering with evidence, a third degree felony. Adjudication was withheld on that charge in 2013.
Also arrested at that address was Michael Lumpkins, 36, on charges of false imprisonment and domestic violence battery on May 3, 2014. That charge, a third-degree felony, was dropped. A domestic battery charge that was part of the same arrest was also dropped even though Lumpkins unsuccessfully completed a deferred prosecution agreement. In 2013, he was arrested on a third-degree felony charge of illegal possession of prescription pills. The charge was dropped. A similar charge was dropped in 2011, and in 2010.
