An incident that left one man with stab wounds created legal problems for two others.

On June 28 LaFollette Police Officer William Owens was called to a West Forrest address to investigate the report of a stabbing.

Upon his arrival Owens was informed by the victim he had been stabbed by Rocky Mitchell Greene, 51, of 603 Rose Hill Drive, according to Owen’s report.

During the course of the investigation Owens located Greene in a Central Avenue apartment. Records indicate as Greene was being placed under arrest he allegedly threw a portion of a blue pill, believed to be morphine, into the bathtub.

Further investigation revealed Greene had allegedly given the knife used in the stabbing to Benjamin Henegar, 23, of 381 Farris Circle. Henegar then washed the weapon off and stashed it in the Central Avenue apartment, Owen’s report said.

When confronted about the crime Henegar allegedly made multiple false statements in an attempt to thwart Owen’s investigation.

Greene was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, tampering or fabricating evidence and possession of a controlled substance.

Henegar is charged with tampering or fabricating evidence, filing a false police report as well as aiding and abetting. Both men are scheduled to appear in court on Friday.
