Man stabs two others over illegal narcotics

23-year-old Hunter Hopper was charged with aggravated assault after he stabbed two people several times during an argument when he went to buy drugs.

On August 24th, Clarksville Police Department officers were dispatched to Circle K at 648 Lafayette Road for a stabbing. The officers found Cedric St. Hill and Nathanial Crowder who both had what appeared to be stab wounds. Both explained that two men came to their residence at 637 Lafayette Road to buy illegal narcotics. While at the house one of the men, Hunter Hopper, got into an argument with St. Hill and brandished a knife.

Hopper stabbed St. Hill multiple times and then stabbed Crowder once before taking off in a green Toyota Tacoma. Officers saw the vehicle and initiated a traffic stop where they found Hopper and his brother, Christopher Hopper. Both were questioned, and Christopher explained that he took his brother to the house to obtain illegal narcotics. He confirmed his brother had stabbed Crowder and St. Hill. Crowder was taken to Tennova Medical Center and St. Hill was life-flighted to Vanderbilt Medical Center.

Hunter Hopper was arrested and charged with two counts of aggravated assault. His bond was set at $205,000.
