MCGAHEYSVILLE -- Rockingham County Sheriff's deputies have arrested 26-year old Camille Brown. Brown is accused of stabbing her boyfriend, Michael Smith.

Rockingham County Sheriff Bryan Hutcheson said Smith and Brown were staying in the Regal Vista community and were originally from Baltimore.

He said the two got into a fight around 10 p.m. Saturday night. Brown is accused of stabbing Smith in the chest.

Peter Leccese lives around that area and said this sort of thing doesn't always happen.

"I'm very pleased with the area. One incident of a stabbing and it's from somebody not even from the area.....that's no problem at all," said Leccese.

Leccese doesn't think this incident will start a trend.

"The security, that's one of the reasons I moved here was the security," said Leecese

Another neighbor, John Hottinger, said he was surprised to hear what happened.

"It's hitting closer to home everyday.....you know?.....It makes you think....that you could be next," said Hottinger.

However, he said he feels if something would happen to him, he has nothing to worry about.

"Somebody comes inside, believe me. I'm pretty protected," laughed Hottinger.

Most of the homes inside the Regal Vista community are time shares. Michael Smith is currently at the University of Virginia Medical Center.

Camille Brown is charged with malicious wounding. She is being held without bond.
