The court date for a Greenville man accused of a stabbing another man on a city bus has been delayed until next year.
Twenty-six year-old Jonathan Strickland of Greenville was scheduled to appear in Pitt County court Tuesday morning. Pitt Community College police say Strickland stabbed Nelson Williams during a fight on the bus two weeks ago.
Williams survived the stabbing, which happened on a Greenville Area Transit bus while on the campus of Pitt Community College. Police say the two started fighting on the bus because of a previous dispute.
Court officials say Strickland's new court date is February 10th.
