A 24-year-old Omahan has been arrested in connection with a stabbing that sent his younger brother to the hospital Saturday with critical injuries.
It is the second time in five years that Tommy Ivory has been accused of stabbing a brother.
Witnesses told police that on Saturday, Arriante Ivory, 22, was fighting with a man at 2511 Wirt St. when a third person stepped in. That third person – now identified as Tommy Ivory– stabbed Arriante Ivory repeatedly with an unknown object, then fled the scene, according to witnesses.
Police announced Monday that they had arrested Tommy Ivory on suspicion of felony assault and use of a weapon to commit a felony.
His brother was being treated at Creighton University Medical Center. Police said he was expected to survive.
Tommy Ivory previously was convicted of a second-degree assault that occurred in 2008. An assistant Douglas County prosecutor said Tommy Ivory was convicted of a nonfatal stabbing of a brother. The prosecutor said he wasn't sure if the victim on that occasion also was Arriante Ivory.
