robert neal allegedly stabbed deaf man in north caroina

According to reports over at, Terrance Daniels of Burlington, NC  was allegedly stabbed multiple times earlier this week, after a passerby assumed that he was throwing up gang signs. Daniels was actually just having a sign language conversation with another hearing-impaired man.

Now the twist in the story is that Robert Neal, the 22 year-old who stabbed Daniels, wasn’t actually a gang member himself! So it looks like he was just an overzealous citizen taking matters into his own hand. Reports from North Carolina’s WGHP Channel 8 claims that there may have been alcohol involved.

Reports also claim that after Daniels was stabbed, he stumbled to a nearby intersection where he collapsed into a patch of grass and was taken to the hospital where he is now recovering. Police eventually arrived on the scene and arrested Neal.

Police arrested 22-year Robert Jarell Neal and charged him with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury and felony assault on a handicapped person. He’s in the Alamance County jail on a $500,000 bond. It’s not known if Neal has an attorney. Source
