HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- A Chesterfield teen has been arrested for allegedly stabbing an 18-year-old high school senior found injured in a Glen Allen yard.

Police were called to a home along the 800 block of Stonemeadow Drive Sunday afternoon.

"Once on the scene, officers located an adult female victim in the front yard," a Henrico Police spokesperson said. "First responders rendered aid, and the victim was transported by EMS to the hospital for treatment due to the injuries she sustained."

Charles D. Alexander, Jr., 19, of Chesterfield was arrested Monday for malicious wounding. Crime Insider sources said he’s the victim’s ex-boyfriend. His criminal history includes charges of disorderly conduct and strangulation.
