Police caught up to him and took him into custody. They recovered a bloody knife when they arrested him.
The woman may have been sexually assaulted in the incident, but detectives still are working to determine if that was the case, Blankenship said.
Harris and the woman were acquaintances and this was not a random act, he said.
She suffered deep cuts to her arms and was taken to Charleston Area Medical Center's General Hospital.
Harris was charged with malicious wounding. Additional charges are pending the investigation, Blankenship said.
Harris is being held at South Central Regional Jail.
