Posted on Thursday, May 18, 2017 at 9:12 am

Two semitruck drivers were involved in an altercation at the Harbison Walker brick plant in Vandalia last week that resulted in both men being charged and one being taken to the hospital for a stab wound.
The stabbing took place during the 8 a.m. hour on Thursday, May 18.
An Audrain County Sheriff’s Office investigation determined that two truck drivers had arrived at the brick plant to unload materials at the plant.
Reportedly, an argument ensued over a parking place or something parking related. The verbal argument led to a physical altercation before weapons were introduced to the conflict.
One driver allegedly had a cargo strap/tie down strap with a heavy metal hook end while the other had a folding blade pocket knife. Both men received injuries.
Julio D. Carballea, age 50, of White Settlement, Texas was arrested at the scene for 2nd Degree Assault and Armed Criminal Action. Myzra Abdykerimov, age 24, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania had a 3/4 inch deep puncture wound on his upper torso behind his left arm. He was in stable condition and transported from the scene to the Hannibal Regional Hospital.
He was treated for his injuries and released.
Abdykerimov was also arrested and jailed for 3rd Degree Assault and Unlawful Use of a Weapon. He was interviewed by Audrain County Deputy William Femrite utilizing a language analyst from the FBI.
In a Probable Cause Statement filed by Audrain County Chief Deputy J.B. Shrader, Carballea claimed Abdykerimov struck him first with the strap before he stabbed Abdykerimov with his knife.
Information was forwarded to the Prosecuting Attorney Jacob Shellabarger’s office for review and formal charging.
