PORTSMOUTH, Va. — The Navy said a sailor stabbed in an attack on a Virginia base is listed in good condition.

Petty Officer 2nd Class Justin Powell's condition was upgraded on Saturday.

The 25-year-old from Sarver, Butler County, had been listed on Friday night in critical condition after surgery.

The attack on Powell early Friday in Portsmouth sparked a lockdown and a manhunt before his suspected assailant was arrested.

Petty Officer 3rd Class Wilbur Harwell was arrested nearby in Virginia Beach.

The Navy said the stabbing occurred outside the Navy Exchange at Naval Support Activity Hampton Roads, Portsmouth Annex.
