Suspect in Steelers player stabbing back in Pa.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — A third suspect in the late-night stabbing of Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman Mike Adams who was apprehended in Florida has been returned to Pennsylvania to face charges in the case.

Authorities said 26-year-old Jerrell Whitlock arrived at Pittsburgh police headquarters Friday afternoon.

Police said officers in Florida used a stun gun on Whitlock after he tried to flee through a back door in his Gainesville motel room earlier this month.

He was being sought on charges of attempted robbery, aggravated assault and conspiracy since Adams was stabbed twice in a June 1 attempted carjacking on Pittsburgh’s South Side.

Twenty-six-year-old Dquay (DOO’-kway) Means and 25-year-old Michael Paranay were arrested earlier in the case.
