Baton Rouge man arrested in stabbing of two people _lowres

Dexter Bowie, 50

A double stabbing led to the arrest Tuesday of a Baton Rouge man who was later found by officers with a crack pipe in his pocket, according to a police report.

Dexter Dewayne Bowie, 50, stabbed a woman in the hand on Monday about 9 p.m. at a residence on North 17th St. following an argument. The injury required stitches, according to a Baton Rouge police report. About two hours later, Bowie stabbed a man at the same location, though a separate Baton Rouge police report does not specify what part of the man’s body was knifed.

The man flagged down an officer and reported both attacks, according to a report. Bowie admitted to the stabbings and said he jabbed the man after getting into a fight about the first incident, the report said. An officer found a crack pipe in the Bowie’s pocket, according to the statement.

Bowie, of 5617 Prescott Rd., faces two counts of aggravated second-degree battery and a count of possession of drug paraphernalia. He was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison and was assigned a bond of $15,500, according to jail records.
