Man accused of attempted murder, gang assault in June stabbing


A 30-year-old man wanted for attempted murder in a stabbing in Rome was taken into custody early Saturday morning after a chance encounter at Stewart's Shop, according to law enforcement officials.

Police said Roy C. Wright, 30, stabbed Lowell E. Ferguson-Clark in the 600 block of W. Liberty St. at about 11 a.m. June 19. Police said Wright fled the scene and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

At about 1 a.m. Saturday, Sgt. Jason Fairbrother stopped into the Stewart's Shop on Floyd Avenue and spotted Wright, whom he recognized from the warrant. Police said Wright was taken into custody without incident.

Wright is charged with attempted second-degree murder and first-degree gang assault for the attack on Ferguson-Clark, police stated. He was arraigned in court and was sent to county jail in lieu of bail. He is scheduled to reappear in court.

Police said Wright is also facing weapons possession charges in Orange County, and he was out on a bail bond when he was taken into custody in Rome.
