Baldwyn Man Arrested for Kidnapping and Assault in Stabbing of Two People

A local man from Baldwyn has racked up multiple charges after an incident on June 12th, including kidnapping, assault, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Police reports indicate that Barry Wayne Brigman, 41, was arrested earlier in the month after two witnesses reported being stabbed by a man, later confirmed by the victims through affidavits to be Brigham.

Police found one victim suffering from stab wounds, and he was quickly sent for medical attention in Memphis, where he was treated and released. Later, another call was received from a victim, which led authorities to Brigham, who had been stabbed and later treated at a medical center.

Brigham racked up his second felony charge for possession of a handgun by a felon in as many months after police charged him in May after responding to a potential suicidal situation involving Brigham.

Bond has been set at $25,000 for Brigham.
