MOYOCK — A man was airlifted to a Virginia hospital after being stabbed in a Moyock area neighborhood earlier this week, reportedly following an altercation with another motorist on N.C. Highway 168.

Brandon Lee remains in fair condition at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, hospital spokesman Dale Gauding said.

Robert Lee, Brandon’s brother, told WAVY-TV that Brandon was stabbed on Tuesday following an incident involving another motorist.

He and his brother were trying to photograph the other motorist’s license plate when the situation quickly turned violent, Robert Lee said.

They followed the other motorist into the North Point residential area, where an altercation ensued between the other motorist and Brandon Lee.

Robert Lee said he did not see the knife in the motorist’s possession until his brother began yelling “knife.”

“And my brother was bleeding everywhere on the ground,” Robert Lee said. “I almost watched my brother die.”

He said if two people at a cul-de-sac had not rendered aid, his brother would probably be dead right now.

WAVY aired the report on Thursday evening.

No additional information about the incident was available from the Currituck Sheriff’s Office on Friday.

District Attorney Andrew Womble, in an email on Friday morning, said he has been in contact with Sheriff Matt Beickert about the incident and said the investigation is ongoing.

“Once his investigation is compete, I will make any necessary charging decisions,” Womble said. 

Currituck Fire-EMS Chief Chip Melton said his agency received a call at 1:51 p.m. on Tuesday from the 100 block of South Street.

Melton said the call was about a motor vehicle accident and someone subsequently being stabbed.

According to Melton, a male was found in critical condition after having been stabbed multiple times in the torso.

Melton said a Sentara Nightingale Air Ambulance team responded and landed near the Southland restaurant to transport the injured male to Norfolk.

After the injured male was transported from the scene, the alleged assailant, while in custody, complained about a medical issue, Melton said.

He said the alleged assailant was transported to Sentara Albemarle Medical Center in Elizabeth City.

Patient confidentiality rules prohibit Currituck Fire-EMS from releasing a patient’s name and Sentara cannot provide a condition update without the patient’s name.

However, Melton said the alleged assailant did not suffer life-threatening injuries.

Melton said his agency’s response was delayed until receiving an all-clear signal from law enforcement, because the scene reportedly involved a weapon.

Robert Lee told WAVY the incident began after he tried to merge in his truck into traffic on Highway 168.

According to Lee, a motorist tried to get between another car and his truck. Lee said he had to accelerate to avoid crashing into a guard rail.

The other motorist threw something at his truck, Lee said

He said he got in front of the motorist, who then “started flipping us off, honking the horn and everything.”

Lee said he wanted to get a picture of the motorist’s license plate and tailed the driver into the North Point residential area, to a dead end.

“At that point, the man got out of the truck, flipping out, flailing and everything,” Lee said. “And my brother got out of the truck.”

“The next thing you know, him and my brother are fighting – and my brother got stabbed,” Lee said.
