A 49-year-old Pontiac man has been arraigned in the stabbing of three women.

Anthony Dewayne Grandberry was charged last week with assault with intent to murder and two counts of assault with dangerous weapon.

According to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded shortly after midnight Friday to the 200 block of South Martin Luther King on a call that three people had been stabbed.

Deputies arrived and found Grandberry, the suspect, walking away from the home. He had severe cuts to his buttocks and was transported by ambulance to St. Joseph Hospital for treatment, officials said.

The victims, three women ages 23, 46 and 49, were taken by ambulance to McLaren Hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries, officials said.

“The investigation revealed that the victims had invited the responsible male into the house,” the sheriff’s office wrote in a report Tuesday. “When he began to argue with the residents, he was asked to leave but refused to. As he was forced out of the home he produced a knife and stabbed the three females.”

One of the women was able to get a knife from the kitchen and stabbed the man in self defense, officials said.

Grandberry remained in custody at the hospital, the sheriff’s office said Tuesday. He was arraigned by video Friday.

Judge Michael Martinez of 50th District Court in Pontiac set bond at $50,000. Grandberry’s next court date is Feb. 23.

Grandberry has a 1991 conviction for felony assault, officials said in the report.
