Posted: Updated:
WHITFIELD COUNTY, GA (WRCB) -

UPDATE: The Whitfield County Sheriff's Office is investigating a stabbing at a home in Dalton early Monday morning.  

Deputies responded to the 1800 block of Riverbend Road around 5:15 a.m. to reports of a man being stabbed multiple times. Upon arrival officers found Sidney L. Quarles, 57, with several superficial stab wounds to his arms, legs, and chest area. 

Officers determined that Quarles and his ex-girlfriend, Carmon Patterson, 31, had gotten into an argument at the residence and it turned physical.

During the altercation Patterson picked up a pair of scissors and stabbed Quarles several times. 

Investigators spent several hours at the home searching for evidence and interviewing potential witnesses to an early morning stabbing.

Marvin Robinson was one of the neighbors Whitfield County detectives interviewed.

"I found out early this morning that a person had been stabbed by a lady that was staying there,” Robinson said.

Robinson says overnight he heard an argument outside but did not think it would escalate to this level of violence.

"I heard a faint holler, it sounded like he was arguing back with the lady late last night,” Robinson explained.

Quarles was transported to the hospital and treated for what investigators are calling non-life threatening stab wounds.

Robinson says he's known his neighbor for a while and is surprised something like this happened so close to home.

"This ain't the first time they fought but it is the first time any violence like this has happened,” Robinson said.

An arrest warrant has been issued for Patterson on a charged of Aggravated Assault.
