The Clarkdale Police Department has arrested a local man in connection with a shooting in March.
Police arrested Mario Magsby Jr., of Clarksdale, on charges of aggravated assault and reported the arrest Tuesday, Sept. 29.
Police said the charges stem from a shooting on March 18. Aggravated assault charges typically arise when someone either uses a weapon or makes someone fear for their life.
Clarksdale Police also reported the theft of an automobile and the theft of auto parts off a vehicle Sept. 29.
The grand larceny auto theft was prompted by a 2017 white Ford Focus that was stolen out of the yard in the 100 block of North State Street. The car was later recovered and returned to the owner.
The grand larceny charge was prompted by the theft of two steel catalytic converters and an oxygen sensor off a 2012 Chevrolet Express that was parked in the parking lot in the 900 block of Commerce Street.
These two cases have been assigned to a Clarksdale Police Department investigator and are active investigations.
Clarksdale Assistant Chief Vince Ramirez has asked anyone with information about these incidents to call the Clarksdale Police Department at 621-8156, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or simply dial 911. All calls remain anonymous and cash is paid to those providing information that leads to solving a crime.
Residents are also reminded that while Clarksdale no longer has a blanket curfew, juveniles are not to be out from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. and parents or guardians or adults with them can be fined for curfew violation of youth in their care or in their car.
