Suspect in Steelers stabbing captured

Police say a third suspect in the stabbing of Pittsburgh
Steelers offensive lineman Mike Adams has been captured in
Florida.

Pittsburgh police spokeswoman Diane Richard says 26-year-old
Jerrell Whitlock of Pittsburgh was arrested Friday morning in
Gainesville in central Florida and is being held there.

Whitlock had been wanted on charges of attempted homicide,
attempted robbery, aggravated assault and conspiracy for his
alleged role in the June 1 attack on Adams. Two other men are
already jailed on similar charges.

According to a criminal complaint, the men tried to rob Adams as
he left a restaurant around 3 a.m. and tried to steal his
vehicle.

Adams had surgery for stab wounds but the 6-foot-7 345-pound
lineman expects to recover by training camp in July.
