A man wanted by Ada police for allegedly stabbing two people Tuesday was taken into custody Wednesday.

Gastineau is wanted for questioning in the stabbings of Jeremy Leslie and Juleigh Dickerson — Gastineau’s pregnant ex-girlfriend. The victims were stabbed multiple times while they slept at a residence in the 500 block of W. 13th just after 4:30 a.m., according to police. Both victims told police Gastineau was the perpetrator.

Gastineau was arrested on suspicion of attempted first-degree murder and is being held in Pontotoc County Justice Center without bond.
