ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Police arrested a Roanoke man after an argument reportedly escalated into a stabbing in Roanoke that sent two other men to the hospital Friday night.
According to the Roanoke Police Department, officers were dispatched to reports of a stabbing near the Market Building at approximately 9:15 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 11.
After police found two men with what appeared to be non-life-threatening stab wounds, Roanoke first responders brought both men to Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital, the department says.
Police say they arrested 34-year-old Kemarcus Curry of Roanoke and charged him with two counts of malicious wounding after officers found him at the scene.
