CANTON, Ga. -- For the second time in only a few hours, deputies in Cherokee County are searching for a stabbing suspect.

Investigators learned of a stabbing victim receiving treatment at Northside Cherokee Hospital Saturday night.

The 43-year-old victim had been stabbed in the back, head and abdomen. Investigators uncovered that the incident unfolded at Waleska Road near Mill Street in Canton at about 8 p.m.

They believe 28-year-old Brian Miller of Canton was responsible. Miller is currently wanted on aggravated assault charges in connection to the Saturday incident.  He was last seen in a dark SUV with a cracked windshield.

It’s the second stabbing reported since Saturday morning in Cherokee County.

Sheriff’s official officials said 61-year-old Richard James Sheriff stabbed his roommate, 45-year-old Claudia Santizo, after an argument and then fled the scene.

Santizon was wounded in her neck and arm. She was taken to Kennestone Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

He was last seen driving an older model brownish-gold Toyota.

Anyone with information on either of these suspects is asked to call 911.
