City man jailed after stabbing, assault incident

CUMBERLAND — A city man was jailed Sunday after he turned himself in to face charges relating to the assault of a 17-year-old girl and the stabbing of two males inside a Fairview Avenue residence, Cumberland Police said.

Dajon Antonio Lopez, 19, was charged with attempted second-degree murder, three counts of first-degree assault, four counts of second-degree assault, two counts of dangerous weapon with intent to injure, and first- and third-degree burglary.

Lopez was also charged in a separate warrant applied for by the girl’s father charging him with stalking, telephone misuse by repeat calls, electronic mail harassment and harassment.

Following a bail review in district court, Lopez was jailed without bond at the Allegany County Detention Center.

Police said the girl was sitting outside the residence at about 2:30 a.m. Sunday when she was approached by Lopez, who allegedly yelled at her, grabbed her by the neck and threw her to the ground.

Lopez then allegedly kicked the door of the residence, entered and stabbed a male occupant in the abdomen and then stabbed a male victim who intervened on the right arm. A third male then intervened and Lopez allegedly attempted to stab him but then ran from the residence.

Lopez turned himself into police after officers contacted his family informing them of the two warrants on file for his arrest.

Police said when officers arrived to investigate, one of the victims was bleeding from a stab wound to the abdomen and a second victim was bleeding from his arm.

The stabbing victims were taken to the Western Maryland Regional Medical Center for treatment of injuries that reportedly were not life-threatening, police said.
