The Forsyth County Sheriff's office has arrested a 26-year-old man from Cumming who they say allegedly stabbed a victim three times during a domestic dispute that occurred overnight Tuesday.

According to Cpl. Doug Rainwater, spokesman for the sheriff's office, Xavier Tyrell Reed, was arrested after deputies responded to an address near Bridge Shaw Drive in Cumming at around 10:40 p.m. Tuesday night and found a male victim with three stab wounds.

Rainwater said that Reed allegedly fled the scene following the attack and, "threw the knife away before returning to the scene."

He said that the knife used in the attack was later recovered from woods close to the scene.

Rainwater said that Reed was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a knife, after being positively identified as a suspect by witness statements and evidence at the scene.

The victim, a 27-year-old male from Cumming, was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Reed was taken to the Forsyth County Jail, and currently has no bond pending further investigation.
