CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - A person is recovering from their injuries this morning following a late-night stabbing in Charleston, according to Metro 911 dispatchers.

Charleston police said one person is in custody, and the victim’s injuries are considered minor.

It happened just before midnight Friday.

Dispatchers say police located the victim at a general store in the 1700 block of Washington Street West in Charleston.

Ryan Sharp who lives in the area said he didn’t know what to think after seeing police cars from his window.

“I saw about 12 cop cars, they all had their lights on,” he said. “I had little kids in the home so I was a little afraid for the kids. I didn’t know what was going on.”
