A Monday night stabbing victim was treated and released from medical care and the man who allegedly stabbed her was arrested.

Halifax County Sheriff’s Office Deputy M. Morris charged William Henry Bell Jr. with assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.
The charges came about after Morris, Deputy G. Weston and Corporal B. Thompson responded to the South Weldon area around 9:30 p.m. after a report a woman was stabbed, Chief Deputy Scott Hall said in a statement.
The woman, who had an injury to her right thigh, reportedly told Morris Bell stabbed her with a knife when she was approached by him on Sycamore near Eleventh Street.
Bell accused the victim of robbing and assaulting him. Hall said there was no evidence Bell had been assaulted or robbed.
Sergeant Lee Mason of the Weldon Police Department located Bell and turned him over to Morris.
Weston charged Bell with possession of marijuana after reportedly finding a joint in his possession.
Bell was jailed on $3,000 secured bond and has an August 2 court date.
