A Greenville County woman is accused of stabbing a man during an argument Monday in Rock Hill.

Jazmine Symone Durham, 24, of Fountain Inn, was charged with attempted murder, possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine in proximity of a school or playground, according to jail records. She was placed in the Rock Hill city jail, where a judge denied bond.

Officers responded to the 600 block of Cauthen Street just after 11 p.m. Monday, where they spoke with two men, one of whom had a stab wound to his stomach, according to a Rock Hill Police Department report. The victim said Durham stabbed him with a knife.

The victim told officers his brother was arguing outside with Jessica Bell-Warren, 24, of Rock Hill, who had come to the home with Durham in a silver Lincoln. During the argument, the victim said, he tried to separate the two, and Durham stabbed him in the stomach with a small black folding knife. Both women reportedly fled in the silver Lincoln.

The victim said he and Durham had a “heated argument” on Sunday that was never resolved, police said. He was taken to Piedmont Medical Center for treatment.

Officers were then called to a home on North Jones Avenue regarding the same incident. There, Durham and Bell-Warren were detained and gave officers permission to search the vehicle, the report states. Inside, they found 1.09 grams of meth in plain view, a digital scale and small clear bags.

Durham and Bell-Warren were the only two people in possession of the vehicle at the time and neither one admitted to possessing the drugs, police said. Both admitted they knew they were in proximity of a nearby church, where a playground was also located.

Bell-Warren was charged with possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine in proximity of a school or playground, according to jail records. She was placed in the Rock Hill city jail, where she remained Tuesday under $15,000 bond.
