    Any updates?  Hope woman and baby are ok.  I just moved to high point and totally love it here.  It is sad and scary that this happened in my community.  Is there any more information if the perpetrator knew the victim or if this was random?  yikes.

      I won’t be able to get further details from SPD before tomorrow but it does not sound to be random – they knew who they were looking for relatively quickly. SFD says the victim was in stable condition when transported.

      I live in Highpoint and I heard from neighbors that the victim and the suspect are sisters. This was not their first incident as arrests were made before at that house. Their mother is in shock apparently. Pray for them.

    A person stabbing anyone, and especially a pregnant woman, deserves to be locked up!

Sorry, comment time is over.
