A lot of people spent the days before Thanksgiving this year shopping for last-minute deals on turkeys and greeting family members who had just arrived from out of town – however, at one residence in High Point, the situation was horrific rather than festive.
According to a press release from the Guilford County Sheriff’s Department, officers called to a scene near the intersection of NC-62 and North Main Street in High Point found a double stabbing.
In that release, the department reported that, on Tuesday, Nov. 23, at just after 11 p.m., officers responded to the 300 block of Ranch Drive in High Point after an aggravated assault took place.
During the course of the investigation, officers determined that two victims – both adults – had been stabbed and were in need of medical attention.
Both victims were taken to a local hospital that the Sheriff’s Department did not name. At the hospital, both were treated for their wounds, which were described as “nonlife threatening injuries.”
An arrest in the case was made at the scene of the crime.
Officers arrested an 18-year-old female, Kayla Therrell, who was still at the residence when they arrived. Therrell has been charged with two counts of “Assault with a Deadly Weapon Inflicting Serious Injury.”
Therrell was booked into jail and was being held on a $50,000 bond.
The Guilford County Sheriff’s Department isn’t offering any further details at this time. If anyone has information regarding the crime, they should contact the department or call Crime Stoppers at 336-373-1000.
Gasp! Outlaw knives! Then we will be more safe.
