MARCH 28, 2006 -- A man is in custody after slashing his brother's face with a knife.

A detective with the New Hanover County Sheriff's Office says Brandice Ward stabbed his brother, Robbie, during a fight. That fight broke out around 8:00 Tuesday morning.

Brandice took off into the woods and was captured about an hour later near Myrtle Grove Road.

After Robbie was stabbed, he ran to a neighbor's house and told her to call 911. The neighbor says he was upset that he had been stabbed in front of his small children.
