— A parolee was wanted Saturday in the stabbing of a 16-year-old at a carnival in Burlington, police said.

Police said that Cameron Romero Graves, 22, stabbed 16-year-old Joshua Ryan Wilson at the carnival in the 1600 block of North Church Street around 10:30 p.m. Friday.

Wilson suffered multiple wounds and was taken to UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill. Police said his condition was stable after he underwent surgery.

Graves might be operating a burgundy Ford Taurus. His last known address was 409 Mill St. in Graham.

He faces two counts of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.

Graves is on parole after being released from prison last September, according to state Department of Correction records. He served nearly five years for armed robbery, kidnapping and burglary convictions.
