Blotter: Man charged after Kannapolis stabbing

KANNAPOLIS — An argument about a relationship led to a stab wound and criminal charges for one man.

Dustin Storme Chapman, 27, was charged Sunday with assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury. He’s accused of stabbing a 31-year-old man with a pocket knife and causing an injury that required stitches, according to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office.

The incident, said Maj. John Sifford, started with an argument Saturday night about cheating in a relationship and a backyard fight at a Temple Street house in Kannapolis.

On Temple Street, deputies found a man sitting in front of a house with a cloth on the left side of his stomach. There was a puncture wound about the size of a dime underneath the cloth.

Chapman and a woman spoke to deputies at a BP gas station located at the intersection of Rainbow Drive and West C Street. Sifford said deputies found a folding pocket knife in the rear, passenger’s side of Chapman’s car. It appeared to be wet with blood, Sifford said.

Chapman was booked into the Rowan County Detention Center with a $4,000 secured bond.
