— A parolee suspected in the stabbing of a teenager at a carnival in Burlington has been released after making a $1,000 secured bond.

Burlington police arrested Cameron Romero Graves, 22, Saturday on one count of assault with a deadly weapon.

Police said that Graves stabbed Joshua Ryan Wilson, 16, multiple times Friday night. Wilson underwent surgery at UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill, and his condition was stable.

Graves had been out of prison for about six months after serving nearly five years for 2005 armed robbery, kidnapping and burglary convictions, according to state Department of Correction records.

While in prison, he had six infractions, including assaulting a person with a weapon and involvement with a gang.

    babedan: You said it. $1000 dollar bail? This behavior is reprehensible. There's just no excuse. The judge should be investigated.

    The Judge who sat that bail ought to be disbarred. An investigation should be started against this judge and a harsh punishment dished out.

    OK. The story right under this one is about a guy who embezzled $2000 rom a grocery store and he is held under a $10,000 bond. How does that make any sense?

    Our court system makes it unsafe for law abiding citizens. This is why so many of us are arming ourselves. He stabbed a kid!! What is wrong with judges these days?

    Only a $1,000 bond??? The victim was hospitalized and underwent surgery, and the suspect is walking the streets.
    Who are the laws protecting?
