Man charged after argument turns into stabbing

Muscle Shoals Police have arrested and charged a man with assault following an attack last week on Mason Street.

According to investigators, 24 year old Carlos Allen was stabbed multiple times in the arms, chest, neck and hands. Police believe Allen was riding in a truck with 46 year old Arthur Andrew King III when the two got into an argument. The fight escalated and the truck pulled over into a driveway on Mason Street. Witnesses tell police both men got out of the truck, then the argument got physical. The men got back in the truck, and police believe that's when Allen was stabbed.

The truck wrecked into a field at Broadway and 6th. Police responded, and took Allen to the hospital. He was later transferred to Huntsville Hospital, where officials say he is improving.

King was brought in for questioning last week, and charged with assault in the following days. He remains in the Colbert County Jail on $25,000 bail.
