An inmate who was on work release was stabbed early this morning in Bertie County.
Sheriff John Holley says it happened at the Perdue plant in Lewiston. The sheriff says the inmate, whose name he didn't have, was taken to the hospital and is now back in prison.
The Department of Correction says the inmate was from the Tillery Correctional Center and was stabbed by another worker at the plant. They refused to release the inmate's name.
Sheriff John Holley says they expect to make an arrest in the case.
