Police arrested a man Monday accused of stabbing his ex-girlfriend multiple times during an argument Friday, a police spokesman said.

Alvin McCreary, 47, picked up the victim from her home about 7:30 p.m. and the two began arguing on the ride to a friend’s house, Cpl. L’Jean McKneely said.

When McCreary and the victim got to the friend’s house on Robin Street, the argument escalated and McCreary grabbed a sharp object, which was not identified in the affidavit for his arrest, McKneely said.

McCreary stabbed the victim multiple times, puncturing a lung and causing multiple other wounds, McKneely said.

McCreary then forced the victim into a truck and drove her around before the victim convinced him to take her to a hospital, McKneely said.

McCreary, 9193 Jones Thomas St., Slaughter, was booked into Parish Prison on one count of attempted second-degree murder.
