A Greenville woman accused of stabbing a man during a fight at a local restaurant was arrested and charged in the incident Wednesday, the Greenville Police Department confirmed Thursday.

Yolanda Faye Cherry, 37, of 137 W. Victoria Court, Apt. A., allegedly stabbed a man identified as 33-year-old Daniel Colby in the back and head several times with a knife, according to warrants obtained Thursday.

The incident happened shortly before midnight on Aug. 29 at Buffalo Wild Wings.

Witnesses at the scene told police officers words were exchanged between two groups of people and a fight erupted, department spokeswoman Kristen Hunter said.

During the fight, witnesses observed Cherry stab Colby with a pocket knife. However, the other people who were also involved in the fight left the scene before officers arrived, Hunter said.

Following the fight, officers went to Vidant Medical Center to check if any patients had been admitted with assault-related injuries or lacerations. They discovered Colby with at least 10 wounds and lacerations to his head and back, Hunter said.

Colby was unable to provide many details about what occurred, however, officers were later able to piece together the events of the night and identify Cherry as a suspect by viewing Buffalo Wild Wings security footage.

Hunter said Colby is expected to recover and that additional arrests are possible.

Cherry is charged with attempted first-degree murder and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill/inflicting serious injury.

She is currently in the Pitt County Detention Center under a $1 million bond. She made her first court appearance Thursday morning at the jail and is scheduled to appear in court Sept. 25.
