According to the sheriff’s office, the Franklin County Communications Center received a 911 call about a stabbing in the 200 block of Southside Drive in Rocky Mount at approximately 11:20 p.m. on Saturday, March 20.

Authorities say the caller advised that a family member stabbed another family member and left the scene.
