There’s been a lot of press about efforts to reduce gun violence in Guilford County, but a new stabbing incident, which comes on the heels of another this holiday season, is reminding people of the dangers of knives as well.

On Tuesday, Dec.14, the Guilford County Sheriff’s Department reported in a press release that, on Monday, Dec. 13, at about 9:30 pm, the department responded to a disturbance call at 302 Ranch Drive in High Point and investigated the situation.

Sheriff’s deputies arrived and discovered two male victims who had been stabbed after a verbal argument. Fortunately, both men survived.  They were taken to the hospital and treated for “serious but non-life-threatening injuries,” according to the report.

 The suspect, Jonathan Ralph White (seen above), was taken into custody “without incident.”  

White has been charged with two counts of Assault with a Deadly Weapon Inflicting Serious Injury.

He is being held at the county’s High Point jail under a $10,000 secured bond.

The report from the Sheriff’s department states that there’s an ongoing investigation at this time.

This dual holiday High Point stabbing comes on the heels of another dual High Point holiday stabbing that happened right before Thanksgiving. In that incident, on Tuesday, Nov. 23, at just after 11 p.m., Guilford County sheriff’s deputies responded to a call in High Point after an aggravated assault took place.

During the course of that investigation, officers determined that two victims – both adults – had been stabbed and were in need of medical attention.

In that case, both victims were taken to a local hospital and treated for their wounds, which were described as “non-life-threatening injuries.”

Officers arrested an 18-year-old female, Kayla Therrell, who was still at the residence when they arrived.  Therrell was charged with two counts of “Assault with a Deadly Weapon Inflicting Serious Injury” and was being held in jail on a $50,000 bond.
