Posted: Updated:

Law enforcement officials in McDowell County are asking for the public's assistance in locating a woman they say stabbed a man in early April.

Investigators say 30-year-old Rebecca Leanne McGinnis is wanted on one count of assault with a deadly weapon.

On April 4, McGinnis got into an argument with a friend, identified as 47-year-old Apolonio Jimenes Castillo. During that argument, deputies say McGinnis pulled out a pocket knife and stabbed Castillo once in the chest.

Castillo was taken to the hospital and was said to be okay.

McGinnis is described as a white female, 5'4" tall, weighing around 185 pounds. She has long brown wavy and blue eyes.

Anyone with information about her whereabouts should call the McDowell County Sheriff's Office at 652-2235 or McDowell County Crimestoppers at 65-CRIME (652-7463).
