Two men were stabbed Friday night in downtown Roanoke, and an acquaintance has been charged with malicious wounding.

Police responding to the incident near the Market Building at about 9:15 p.m. found two men with what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries.

The men, who were not named in a news release from the Roanoke Police Department, were rushed to Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital.

A suspect was identified on the scene, and police arrested Kemarcus Curry, 34, on two counts of malicious wounding.

Police said all three men were known to one another, and a verbal argument escalated into a physical one that led to the stabbing.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call police at 540-344-8500. Texts can be sent to 274637 beginning with “RoanokePD.” Both calls and texts can remain anonymous.
