Cary, N.C. — Police on Tuesday charged a 30-year-old Cary man after they say he stabbed a woman and held her hostage inside an apartment Sunday morning.
Jason Greenlee, 30, of Ribbon Lane, faces one count of attempted first-degree murder and one count of first-degree kidnapping in the assault. His relationship to the victim, Stephanie Cary, is not clear, but police are calling the crime a domestic assault.
Greenlee was being held Wednesday at the Wake County jail on a $3 million bond.
Police said Greenlee took Cary hostage inside an apartment at 105 Ribbon Lane around 5:45 a.m. Sunday. He released her children and sister-in-law, who were unharmed. Cary, who suffered serious stabbing wounds, was let out some time later and taken to WakeMed.
Greenlee barricaded himself in the apartment and was eventually taken into custody shortly before 9 a.m., police said. He was treated for self-inflicted injuries at a local hospital and then released into police custody Tuesday.
