A stabbing occurred in Pembroke Friday afternoon, according to the Pembroke Police Department.

"We know who the suspect is and it appeared to be a domestic dispute," said PPD Chief Billy Collins, who noted the suspect is female but her identity could be released until she was found and taken into custody.

The stabbing incident reportedly happened in a trailer located down North Main Street, near the Leggett’s Stop and Go.

One man was injured during the stabbing, but the extent of his injuries was unknown Friday. Collins said information about the man’s identity could not be released until they knew the status of his condition. He was transported by EMS to Memorial Hospital.

Collins said the woman was reportedly traveling alone and her family was been notified.

"I spoke to her relative and made him aware of what’s going on. This is a violent crime and we don’t want anything else to happen – anything can happen when you’re trying to get a suspect into custody – and we’re hoping she’ll come to us," Collins said. "Her family has been very receptive to trying to help us locate her and we really, really appreciate that support and assistance."

Collins said he believed the woman was still in Bryan County on Friday, but they were in the process of going through leads to try and locate her.
