Mocksville police are investigating a stabbing at the Scottish Inn on Yadkinville Road Friday night.

The victim, John Stuart Harrah, 53, was taken to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center where he is being treated for a stab wound to the left side, said Mocksville Police Major Pat Reagan.

Police have yet to make an arrest, but have a “person of interest” in another resident of the motel. The victim and that person lived in different rooms.

Police are doing follow-up investigations on eyewitnesses, most of whom were intoxicated, Reagan said.

They are also testing several different potential weapons used in the assault, he said.
