WINSTON-SALEM MAN STABBED BY FRIEND
Claude Moore, 54, of Winston- Salem was stabbed in the stomach by his friend on Feb. 22 at a house on Manchester Street. An alcohol-fueled argument led to the stabbing, which sent Moore to Baptist Hospital to be treated for a non-life threatening injury. Moore’s friend, a white man in his fifties, fled after the stabbing. The Winston-Salem Police Department issued a warrant for his arrest and Stokes County Sheriff’s Department is assisting with the search.
With friends like these, who needs enemies?
