“When officers arrived at the park, they found there was no disturbance,” McMann said. “The officers left the park and an officer drove up on a disturbance at the intersection of East Sunset and Harris Streets.

“Several vehicles immediately started leaving the area,” McMann added. “The officer conducted a traffic stop on one of the vehicles and discovered one of the occupants had been stabbed and a second victim had also been stabbed.”
McMann said both victims told the officer that Seltzer allegedly stabbed the victim and gave a description of her vehicle. Seltzer was located by officers a short time later and taken into custody, he added.

Seltzer was then transported to the Escambia County Detention Center in Brewton.
