Stabbing at Mercy Ministries critically injures Augusta man

Date

A homeless man has been charged with repeatedly stabbing another man Wednesday afternoon at Mercy Ministries in downtown Augusta.

Remos Antwyn Lovett, 40, is being held without bond for aggravated assault and other unrelated warrants. The victim is in critical condition.

Mercy Ministries, 2034 Broad Street, Augusta, GA

At lunchtime Wednesday, Lovett allegedly stabbed Corey Moore multiple times in his arm and at least once in his chest with a 2-inch knife, an arrest warrant says.  The incident took place at 12 noon at 2034 Broad Street, which is Mercy Ministries, a non-profit that operates a thrift store at that location.

Moore was rushed to Augusta University Medical Center, where he was listed in critical condition.

The suspect has a long list of minor crimes in recent years including shoplifting, trespassing and disorderly conduct. He has always been given probation, many times with community service included.

A motive for the crime is not clear. A phone call to Mercy Ministries went unanswered Thursday.

  1. The suspect in this assault is described as “homeless.” When suspects have a residence, is the adjective “housed” typically used to describe them? If not, why use this adjective to describe a suspect who is unhoused?

  2. Thank you for your comment, Ayman. When subjects have a residence, the sheriff’s office usually lists that address in the booking sheet and we refer to them by the city of residence. In this case, the sheriff’s office clearly marked him as “homeless” in the booking sheet, so it is something we passed on to the reader. It also stands to reason that he may have been a customer at Mercy Ministries, since they help a lot of homeless people. Hope that answers your question.
