HIGH POINT, N.C. — High Point police are investigating after a man accused of stabbing his roommate on Wednesday was charged with attempted first-degree murder.

Police said the incident happened on Edgeworth Street.

Investigators said that while they were surveying the crime scene, a call came in from a High Point officer working at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center that a stabbing victim was walking in the emergency room.

Officers said 23-year-old Ahmad McClain got into an argument with two of his female roommates. McClain and the two females began assaulting each other and McClain pulled out a knife at some point.

Police said the two females backed away and started running when McClain chased them and stabbed one of the victims three times in her upper back.

Investigators said the victim and her friend drove themselves to the hospital.

Police said the woman who was stabbed had non-life-threatening injuries.

High Point police said warrants for attempted first-degree murder and assault on a female were obtained on McClain Wednesday evening.

Police said McClain went to the High Point Police Department and turned himself in on Thursday.

McClain is in being held at the Guilford County Jail on a $200,000 bond.
