Two people are on the run, and they're believed to be armed and dangerous. Goochland authorities need your help tracking them down.

One of the suspects, 49-year-old Ricky Darnell Ramey, is wanted for malicious wounding after a man was stabbed during a fight on Hadensville-Fife Road in Western Goochland.

The suspect's relatives say they're not sure what exactly happened. They say if Ramey is responsible, he should turn himself in.

According to family, Ramey escaped with his girlfriend who's also wanted for firing shots in the air during the fight.

Early Saturday morning, someone called 911 saying Ramey had stabbed a man in the back. The Goochland Sheriff's Office says the man had gotten into a fight with Bruce Englehart who is also a family friend. Englehart is in good condition at VCU Medical Center.

"There was blood everywhere," said Ramey's sister. "It shocked me. Like I said, I don't really know what happened."

The suspect's older sister says she was having a birthday party for her son when the men starting fighting outside, just before 2:00 a.m.  

"Let me ask you a question," said the suspect's brother, Doug Ramey. "Anytime somebody gets to drinking, stuff is going to happen right? It gets out of hand."

Soon after the stabbing, Ramey's sister says her brother's girlfriend fired a gun, but no one was shot. Ramey's brother didn't know about the stabbing until NBC12 approached him. He's visiting from Florida.

"Disappointment because he should have had more sense than that to be honest with you," said Ramey. "Walk away. My momma and daddy raised us better than that."

Police have arrest warrants for Ricky Ramey, who's 49, about five feet five, and weighs 158 pounds.

They're also looking for Charlotte Hodges who's also 49, five feet eight, and weighs about 340 pounds.

Witnesses say the two left in a green 1995 Ford Explorer with Virginia license tag: XNY-7765.
