CCSO: Tip led to capture of stabbing suspect

JONESBORO, Ark. – A man suspected of stabbing another and fleeing authorities over the weekend in the county was arrested after authorities were tipped off about his location, Captain Justin Rolland with the Craighead County Sheriff’s Office told NEA Report.

Noah Wright, 35, was arrested early Monday after the CCSO received information as to his location. Wright ran from authorities over the weekend after he allegedly stabbed a man Friday night on Craighead County Road 111 off of Highway 91.

Social media posts, including by the suspect, suggest a love triangle of sorts between Wright, the alleged victim and a female. The victim was hospitalized with stab wounds. His condition has not been updated to media. 

Wright was taken to a hospital for dehydration upon his arrest, Monday.

Wright was also alleged to have broken into a Bono business during his run from authorities. Owners of Environmental Friendly Racing posted late Sunday Wright was found on camera in their business and allegedly stole $1,380.00.

Brad Cline, owner of Jonesboro Karting Complex, briefly offered a reward for his capture before Wright was apprehended.

“After the stabbing, he ran down Big Creek and broke into the kart store to hide out,” Cline said. “He was there for nearly three hours and stole the money out of the register. We have the video.”

NEA Report is waiting for updates on this story from the sheriff’s department. We will post them when we receive them.
