25-year-old Jacob Morgan is in police custody and charged with aggravated assault for stabbing another man early Monday morning.

Jackson Police Department Commander Tyree Jones says 28 year-old Charlton Steele was stabbed by Morgan around 4:30 a.m. 

The stabbing happened at the Best Value Inn and Suites on the I-55 Frontage Road at Canton Mart Road. 

Authorities say Steele and Morgan had been fighting. A man who lives in the area says his friend saw the fight.

"It was just a lot of commotion. He's working and he was just upset that he couldn't get all his rest because of this," says Jackson resident Michael Seaton. 

Steele and Morgan went to the hospital and have been released. Morgan was arrested after he left the hospital.

Morgan is awaiting his initial court appearance.
