RUSSELL COUNTY, Va. -

Two people have been arrested in Russell County, Virginia in connection with a robbery and stabbing that happened Wednesday night.

The Russell County Sheriff's Office says a juvenile and 28-year-old Joseph Perry Seymour robbed a farmer in Castlewood, Virginia.

We're told the farmer was doing his chores when the two robbed him of cash, stabbed him in the arm, and then cut the tires on his tractor.

Police say both are facing several charges.

The farmer has since been treated and released.
