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.

The department says the preliminary investigation indicates all three men knew each another. The men were reportedly arguing, which then escalated into a physical confrontation that resulted in the stabbing.
