Man stabbed: One arrested in altercation in Kannapolis

Staff report

KANNAPOLIS — One man was hospitalized and another man was charged with attempted murder after police responded to a stabbing and beating in north Kannapolis on Friday.

Jeremy Lamarr Norman, 23, of 305 Blackwelder St., was treated for his injuries and kept overnight at NorthEast Medical Center before being discharged Saturday.

Police arrested Michael Lee Burton, 22, of 2824 Wilkie Drive, around 3 a.m. Saturday morning. He is the Rowan County jail under $100,000 bond, charged with attempted first-degree murder.

Investigators are seeking two other suspects. Officials had obtained an arrest warrant and were searching for Tamin Rajan Benjamin, 24, of 2894 Springdale Ave.

The third assailant had not been identified Saturday night.

Neighbors called police to report a fight around 5:15 p.m. Friday when the three suspects apparently attacked Norman outside his home, police said.

The neighbors reported hearing shots fired. Kannapolis Police Investigator Laura Carden said she believes the suspects fired the shots, but she said that Norman was not hit.

However, the men stabbed Norman in the back and beat him before he made it into his house, she said.

Carden said police don’t yet know why the men attacked Norman, but she said he knows all of them.
