Just before 5 a.m. on Sunday, Statesville Police responded to a home in the 400 block of Monroe Street for reports of a stabbing.

When officers arrived on the scene, they located the victim who was suffering from a stab wound. The victim was taken to a local hospital then airlifted to Wake Forest Univeristy Baptist Medical Center for further treatment.

Other people at the home at the time of the incident told officers the suspect had already fled the scene.

Investigators determined 48-year-old Kelvin Roberts is the suspect in this case, and obtained felony warrants for assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury.

Roberts is still wanted on these charges. If you have any information on Roberts’ whereabouts, please call Iredell Crime Stoppers at (704) 662-1340.
