The 17-year-old Garrett was named as a suspect in the August 27th stabbing of a woman at Pecan Grove Apartments. He is charged with attempted first degree murder, kidnapping, first degree rape, failure to appear and multiple burglary charges.
The victim was taken to Pitt County Memorial Hospital for treatment, but has since been released.
