At 3:05 p.m. Wake Forest Police officers conducted a traffic stop at the Market Shopping Center, located along the 12000 block of Capital Boulevard/US 1. A white male fled on foot.
Less than one hour later, at 3:54 p.m., officers responded to a reported stabbing along the 600 block of Durham Road. Upon arrival, officers located a female who had been stabbed. During the subsequent investigation, officers learned the female was stabbed by a white male who they believe unsuccessfully attempted to steal her vehicle. The female was transported to a local treatment facility. Her condition is unknown.
Wake Forest Police believe the two incidents are related and are now searching for a white male who is either shirtless or wearing a white tank top and black shorts.
He is considered armed and dangerous.
Area residents are urged to lock their doors and call 9-1-1 if they see anything suspicious.
