VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Detectives with the Valdosta Police Department have identified Jahmal McGee as the man they're looking for in the March 13 stabbing and robbery of Leon Mitchell.

Arrest warrants have been obtained on McGee for Aggravated Assault, Aggravated Battery, Armed Robbery, and Possession of a Knife During the Commission of a Crime.

"Jahmal McGee has been identified as the offender in the stabbing of Mr. Mitchell," said Valdosta Police Department Lieutenant Aaron Kirk.

"We have obtained warrants from the court for the aggravated assault and the robbery, among other things. Right now, we're looking for him. We would ask the public, if you do see him call 911. If you know where his location is, contact us so we can pick him up," Kirk continued.

The police department is asking anyone with information about McGee's location to contact law enforcement.

Last Thursday morning, the Valdosta Police Department responded to the 300 block of Lee Street Lane in reference to a person who had been stabbed multiple times.

Officers arrived and located Leon Mitchell who had multiple stab wounds to his back. Mitchell was transported by EMS to the ER.

Mitchell underwent surgery and is listed in serious condition. He remains in the hospital recovering from his injuries.
