Malicious Wounding Arrest

Officers responded to the lobby of Martinsburg City Hall for a person who was reporting a stabbing. The victim was at the police station with a stab wound to his upper right shoulder area and medics were called. The victim was James N. Jordan of 270 Rockyford Road Clear Brooke Va. age 32. He said the stabbing occurred at 302 W. Race Street Martinsburg. The victim said he was stabbed by a person he knows as Charles Redman.

Officers went to W Race St. and found evidence of the stabbing. A witness confirmed that it happened and Redman was still at this location. There appears to be some type of relationship with the parties involved. As a result of an argument, not involving Redman he became involved and stabbed Jordan in the shoulder area. The weapon used was a folding knife that officers believe has been recovered inside the apartment.

Jordan was being treated at City Hospital for this wound which is non-life threatening. Charles Redman age 40 with no fixed address was arrested and charged with Malicious Wounding and was taken to the Eastern Regional Jail to await arraignment.
