Argument intensifies, man stabs woman twice

ALBANY, Ga. -- A friendly visit turned bloody when a man stabbed a 45-year-old woman in the shoulder twice at about 7:45 p.m. Friday, an Albany Police Department official said.

Charles Rose, 50, was arrested at a 1504 Eager Road residence for aggravated assault in connection with the stabbing, a police report stated.

"Two women went to Charles Rose's house for a social visit," said Phyllis Banks, police spokeswoman. "He approached (Patricia Adams) and stabbed her twice in the right shoulder."

Adams was taken to Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital by Dougherty County EMS, Banks said. A hospital spokeswoman said the hospital had no patient by that name on Saturday.

Typically that is an answer given when a patient has left the hospital's care or when a patient requests that no information be given. Banks said Adams was not deceased.

The other woman, Janet Highsmith, 39, was uninjured and was taken along with Rose to the Law Enforcement Center for questioning, a police report stated.

After questioning the two, police took Rose to the Dougherty County jail, Banks said. Rose was booked into the jail with no bond and remained there Saturday, a jail spokeswoman said.
