ORIGINAL: 10:00 A.M.

Valley Police are on the search for a man wanted for an attempted murder suspect accused of attacking two young girls with a sharp weapon on Friday at 1:00 a.m.

Valley Police say 24-year-old Jasper Irvin Berry attacked a 7-year-old and 15-year-old girl with a sharp weapon.

According to the press release, Valley Police went to a home on Jennings Street. They say they received a call about a child lying in the driveway bleeding heavily from a cut at the base of her skull. 

Police say the 15-year-old second victim had multiple stab wounds to her upper torso, back, arms, and head. Police say Berry went to the house looking for the mother of the 7-year-old/ sister of the 15-year-old. When he couldn't find her, he got really upset and started attacking the girls with a sharp weapon. Police say the 15-year-old was able to make it to her grandfather's room and that's when Berry left the home. 

Valley EMS treated both victims. The 7-year-old was taken by Life Flight to Eggleston Hospital in Atlanta. The 15-year-old was first taken to EAMC-Lanier Valley and later transferred to Grady Hospital in Atlanta. 

Police say Berry is wanted on two counts of attempted murder. Police say he is 5'07 and weighs around 185 lbs. They say he was last seen driving a 2012 gray Dodge Avenger with an Alabama tag of 12AC811.

If you know where Berry can be found, call Valley Police Department at 334-756-5200 or the Valley Area Crime Stoppers at 334-756-8200.
