KANAWHA COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) - The Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office confirms two men were stabbed during a fight in the Campbells Creek area of Kanawha County.

It took place in a home along Gap View Drive late Friday night.

The suspect, 45 year-old Allen Wolfingbarger, has been arrested and charged with malicious assault, according to deputies.
