MOULTRIE — The man who allegedly stabbed a woman multiple times early Sunday morning faces additional charges. The woman remained hospitalized as she recovers from the attack.

Alvin Arnold, 29, of 710 Ninth Ave. S.E., was charged with aggravated assault, aggravated battery, false imprisonment and kidnapping.

A Colquitt County sheriff’s deputy was called to Oakdale Baptist Church on Sumner Road at 4:19 a.m. Sunday about a possible stabbing. Karen Hiers told the deputy she found Janneka Hamilton, 27, who had been stabbed several times.

The deputy found Hamilton lying on the porch face down and in a pool of blood, and he rolled her onto her back. She had several stab wounds to her upper body, her throat had been cut or slashed, and she had several wounds on the right side of her face, according to the deputy’s report.

Hamilton told the deputy Arnold picked her up and drove her to the church. He allegedly began stabbing her with a knife while they were still inside the car, then he allegedly shoved her out and fled the scene.

Hamilton stated she rolled and crawled from the church to a nearby house for assistance, which is where Hiers met her and called 911. She was taken to Colquitt Regional Medical Center by Colquitt County EMS, and a hospital spokesperson said she remained in stable condition Tuesday afternoon.

The deputy found blood in the church’s parking lot, along with a bloody coat, and an investigator arrived at the scene. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is assisting with the investigation.
