OXFORD - A Panola County man is facing felony charges after a Sunday morning fight that ended with a stabbing.

Oxford police were called to a group of men fighting on North Lamar Boulevard in front of Pita Pit around 1:30 a.m. Oct. 6. Officers found a male victim with multiple non-life threatening stab wounds to the leg and chest.
