LOUISBURG, N.C. (WNCN) — A Franklin County man is accused of stabbing another man near Youngsville.

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office said 54-year-old Steven Erich Wade was being held at the county jail Friday on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.

Deputies say they responded to an abandoned 911 call early Friday on White Cedar Lane off N.C. Route 96 near Youngsville.
