Authorities say Jeffrey Armstrong has been charged with felonious assault.
The suspect in a stabbing case has been taken into custody. Highland County Sheriff Ron Ward says authorities were tipped by a caller that 46-year-old Jeffrey Armstrong was walking along US 62, south of Swamp Road. Armstrong was found in that area at 11:45am, Wednesday, and was taken to Highland County Justice Center where his bond is set at $100,000 on a charge of felonious assault.
On Tuesday, authorities received a 911 call from a female who said she had been stabbed multiple times by a male acquaintance. She was found with multiple stab wounds to the upper torso, face, and head.
The case will be presented to the prosecutors office where the case will be presented to an upcoming session of the grand jury.
