Brothers charged in Richmond County stabbing

ROCKINGHAM — Two brothers are facing charges following a stabbing altercation last week.

On the night of Oct. 12, the deputies responded to a report of someone being stabbed on Tillman Road, west of Rockingham, according to a press release from the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office.

When the deputies arrived on-scene, they reportedly found “three male subjects that had been involved in some type of altercation.”

At least two of the men reportedly had cuts or stab wounds and were treated at the scene by EMS before being taken to the emergency room.

Following an investigation, the sheriff’s office charged 52-year-old Tony Fredrick Terry and 39-year-old Eric Dushawn Terry, both of Tillman Road, each with one count of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury. The younger Terry was also charged with damage to property.

(Note: State records show Tony Terry being 51.)

The press release gives no more information on the third person allegedly involved.

Both were arrested Oct. 13 and booked into the Richmond County Jail, where they remained Tuesday, each under a $25,000 secured bond. They are scheduled to appear in court Oct. 27.

Records with the N.C. Department of Public Safety Division of Adult Correction show this is not Tony Terry’s first time being charged with assault. He has twice been convicted of assault on a female — first in 2000 and again in 2005.


Tony Terry’s record also includes convictions on multiple counts of breaking and entering vehicles in both Richmond and Anson counties, felony larceny, damage to property and driving while impaired.

Eric Terry was also convicted of assault on a female, as well as injury to real property, in 2012, records show.

All defendants facing criminal charges are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
