Two teenagers who were sent to Wake Forest Baptist
Health Sunday with knife wounds have apparently been
released from the hospital.
Mount Airy residents Russell Enriq Spivey and Joseph
Vaughn Brannock, both age 17, were hospitalized with
knife wounds Sunday as a result of a confrontation with
two other people on Shoals Road. An employee answering
the Wake Forest Baptist Health patient information line
did not have any records Wednesday evening of patients
with those names still being treated there.
Sheriff Graham Atkinson said officers were called to
Northern Hospital of Surry County shortly after 10 p.m.
Sunday when Brannock and Spivey were admitted to the
hospital with knife wounds. The sheriff’s office is called
whenever patients come in with gun shot or knife wounds.
Brannock was sent to Wake Forest Baptist Health by Air-
Care with a serious injury to his arm, according to Atkin-
son. He said Spivey suffered knife wounds to his arm and
chest and was sent to Baptist hospital by ground transport.
The sheriff said Wednesday that no charges had been
filed in the case, though officers are still investigating to
determine what happened in the wounding incident and if
any charges should be filed.
