ECKMAN - A McDowell County man was arrested after he allegedly stabbed another man over the weekend.

Virgil Wade was charged with malicious wounding and attempted murder.  

According to state police, Ricky Helm sustained injuries to his upper torso and neck after he was stabbed Saturday morning at an apartment complex in Eckman during what troopers believe was a random act of violence.  They said Helm was able to tell police information about the suspect and was taken to a local hospital where he's listed in stable condition.

Wade was apprehended at that same complex without incident.  He's currently in the McDowell County Holding Facility.
