CHARLOTTE — A sergeant at the Mecklenburg County Detention Center was stabbed three times by an inmate on Monday, officials said.
The sheriff’s office said 30-year-old Sherrod Davidson was housed at the Mecklenburg County Detention Center-Central.
Sergeant G. Anthony was stabbed by Davidson with a homemade weapon and was taken to the hospital for treatment, according to authorities. He is expected to make a full recovery.
“It deeply concerns me when the staff working in our detention centers encounter such acts of violence. Our detention professionals do a tremendous job of maintaining the safety of those detained and working inside our facilities. Every day they are met with challenges and their courage and efforts often go unnoticed. The MCSO Investigative Unit will thoroughly investigate the incident and expects to seek criminal charges against the resident responsible for the assault,” said Sheriff Garry L. McFadden.
