A reported stabbing during the noon hour Thursday on the city`s west side sent several school campuses and Navarro College into lockdown for two hours while law enforcement searched for the suspect in the case.

In a news release Thursday afternoon, Corsicana Police Chief Robert Johnson said

At approximately 12:31PM Thursday, the Corsicana Police Department received a 911 call in reference to a 25 year old female who had been stabbed in the neck by a person known to her. The suspect and victim had been in a relationship.

When officers arrived, witnesses stated that the suspect immediately ran out the back exit of the apartment building located in the 400 Block of North 40th St. immediately after stabbing the victim.

Due to the nature of the incident Corsicana Police advised the CISD, Navarro College, Navarro Regional Hospital, and nearby nursing homes to go into lockdown mode.

The Corsicana Police Department was assisted in a two hour search of the area and vacant homes by the Navarro County Sheriff`s Office, Texas Department of Public Safety, Corsicana ISD Police Department and Navarro College Police Department.

Johnson said they have reason to believe that the suspect is not still in the area and advised these locations to release the lockdown at about 3 pm Thursday.

Police are looking for 28-year-old Rico Devon Bradley, a black male, approximately 6`5 with a slim build. He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt with baggy blue jeans

Johnson added that the suspect is considered armed and dangerous, and urged the public to call 9-1-1 immediately should they see the suspect, and not try to apprehend him.
