Man stabbed in East Spencer

EAST SPENCER — A man was stabbed in a Grant Street apartment last night and flown to a nearby hospital for surgery. Police are investigating and now have a person of interest, according to East Spencer Police Chief Floyd Baldo.
Deshawn Outlaw, 22, was stabbed in the upper right chest and received another gash to his stomach, Baldo said.
Police said they received a call around 8:30 p.m. about a fight at Grant Street, but they found nothing going on when they got there.
Then, around 11:30 p.m., the Salisbury Police Department received a call from Rowan Regional Medical Center stating that Outlaw had been stabbed and was in the emergency room, preparing to be flown out for surgery.
East Spencer Police Sgt. Jim Young also responded.
Police discovered that Outlaw had driven to his girlfriend’s house on Standish Street after being stabbed, and then he was taken to the hospital.
The Salisbury Police Department assisted East Spencer by taking photos of Outlaw’s car.
Baldo said pieces of Outlaw’s clothing are missing, and the stabbing most likely happened inside a Grant Street apartment since no blood was found outside.
Baldo said Young is going to try to re-interview Outlaw, as he was not cooperative last night.
Outlaw was arrested by the Salisbury Police Department in March and charged with felony selling and delivering marijuana, conspiracy to sell marijuana, possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and maintaining a dwelling for a controlled substance.
