Enfield police Chief Tyree Davis said a stabbing last week was fueled by alcohol use and an argument between two women over a male friend.

In a statement on the matter, Davis said the stabbing occurred last Friday around 7 p.m. at PDQ Apartments on North McDaniel Street.
Lieutenant Daniel Jones and Officer Willie Hammiel responded to the stabbing call.
Hammiel located the victim and discovered she had a 2-inch long laceration on her upper left arm.


The victim identified her attacker as 54-year-old Mary M. Alston of Enfield.
Halifax County EMS transported the victim to Halifax Regional Medical Center in Roanoke Rapids where she was treated and released.
Jones and Hammiel questioned witnesses who were on the scene. The witnesses also identified Alston.
While questioning Alston, the knife reportedly used was seized.
Alston was taken into custody and charged with assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.
She was held on a $1,000 bond. She has a June 13 court date.
