Office Press Release

LINCOLNTON, N.C. - Around 9 a.m. on November 24, 2020 Lincoln County Sheriff's deputies were dispatched to a possible disturbance after 9-1-1 heard a struggle over the telephone.

When officers arrived on the scene they found an open door but no one at the residence. Officers checked the home and found blood on the floor and on the walls leading into a bedroom area. As the officers were walking toward the front door a man approached the residence with both hands raised above his head stating he stabbed his mom. The man was identified as Tyreke Dreshawn Alexander, 24, of 1125 Buffalo Shoals Road, Lincolnton, NC.

The suspect said the knife used in the incident was thrown across the road from the residence. A search of the area by detectives located the weapon, a silver kitchen knife with a black handle.

The victim, Tasha Lynette Alexander, told officers she was asleep and woke up to her son attacking her. She was treated at Atrium Health - Lincoln for lacerations to her face.

Tyreke Alexander was transported to the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office where he was interviewed and charged with assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury. He was placed under a $75,000 secured bond and has a first appearance in Lincoln County District Court on November 25, 2020.
