One man is in jail today charged with stabbing another man during an argument in north Shreveport, said Sheriff Steve Prator.

Caddo patrol deputies were called to the 7800 block of Edelweiss Drive at 7:44 p.m. on Tuesday in reference to a man who had been stabbed in his side.  According to witnesses, Joseph Ponseigo Jr., 26, and Anthony Digrazia, 27, were involved in a disagreement about a woman while standing outside Ponseigo’s residence.  During the argument, Digrazia stabbed Ponseigo with a knife in the right side of his torso.  Ponseigo received a non-life threatening injury and was transported to Ochsner LSU Health by Caddo Fire District 1.

Digrazia fled the scene and was located later at a relative’s house in the 6600 block of Tammany Drive.  CPSO Detective Matt Purgerson charged Digrazia with one count of aggravated second-degree battery.
