RALEIGH — A 17-year-old was being held on a half-million-dollar bail Thursday on a charge that he stabbed and cut another person on Wednesday afternoon at a mobile-home park off Buffaloe Road.
Kelon Akell Jenkins was arrested near where police found Dontrell Evans, 18, with a stab wound to his stomach and cuts on his face, police spokesman Jim Sughrue said. Officers had been dispatched at about 2:45 p.m. to a call about a stabbing on Foxhall Village Road.
Jenkins lives on Foxhound Road, another street in the same mobile home park as Foxhall Village Road, according to an arrest warrant.
Evans’ wounds were considered non-life-threatening, Sughrue said, but he was taken to WakeMed Hospital.
Police said Evans lived on Presley Court in Raleigh.
Police charged Jenkins with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury, and he was scheduled for a first court appearance Thursday.
Police said the arrest warrant that the wounds were caused by a “bladed weapon,” but they did not disclose what it was.
