WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - Police have released an updated timeline of what happened in Saturday's deadly stabbing in south Wichita.

They first encountered 36-year-old Goldy Metcalf around 5:00 a.m. Saturday. Police say he was being held a gunpoint by a man for breaking into his car in the 1800 block of N. Kansas. Metcalf was cooperative with officers and was cited for misdemeanor tampering with an automobile. He was then taken to a local hospital for medical treatment for a previous injury to his mouth.

Metcalf then left the hospital around 8:00 a.m. where police say he stole a pickup truck left running in the 600 block of N. Waco before crashing the truck into a church in the 600 block of S. Green. He then ran away to a home three blocks away.

Around 8:15 a.m., officers were called to that home where they found a 64-year-old woman and a 73-year-old man hurt. Police say Metcalf forced his way inside the home and stabbed the victims. Both were taken to the hospital. The woman died at the hospital and the man has serious, but non-life-threatening injuries. Their names have not been released.

Metcalf then entered another home in the 600 block of South Erie, this time empty, before trying to get into a church.

He was arrested thanks to tips from people in the area. He is accused of first-degree murder, aggravated battery, criminal deprivation of vehicle, two counts of criminal damage to property, criminal trespass, possession of paraphernalia, and an arrest and detain order.

Metcalf was paroled from prison in July and has prior convictions for aggravated battery, criminal possession of a firearm, burglary, flee law enforcement, and aggravated robbery.


Previous updates:

Wichita police have arrested 36-year-old Goldy L. Metcalf of Wichita for first-degree murder, aggravated battery, criminal deprivation of vehicle, two counts of criminal damage to property, criminal trespass,  possession of paraphernalia, and an arrest and detain order. The charges stem from a stabbing that happened Saturday morning in the 900 block of N. St. Francis.

 


One person is dead and a second in critical condition following a stabbing and car theft Saturday morning.

Police say a man doing yard work called just before 9:00 a.m. to report his car had been stolen from the 900 block N. St. Francis, and not 600 block of N. Waco as originally thought. Shortly after, police say the same suspect crashed into a church at Poplar and Orme causing minor damage to the building.

That's also when police say the suspect went to a home a block away on Green and stabbed two people inside. One person has died and a second person has been taken to the hospital for treatment. 

The suspect was arrested a couple blocks away from the crash scene. 

Wichita Police Chief Gordon Ramsay says there's no evidence yet of a connection or relationship between the suspect and victims. He says it appears to be completely random. However, they are in the early stages of the investigation.

Chief Ramsay did not release the suspect's name, but says he is on parole for six other offenses and has a lengthy criminal history.
