RIVESVILLE, W.Va. — A Marion County man is facing a felony charge after police say he stabbed a Rivesville man in the stomach.
Nathaniel David Lewis Jr., 34, of Fairmont is being held on a $120,000 bond following the incident Sunday night. He is charged with malicious assault and nighttime burglary.
The victim was interviewed at United Hospital Center in Bridgeport, where he and his girlfriend claimed Lewis had come to their residence to drop off cigarettes. They further told police that Lewis left the Jackson Street home, but announced his return by kicking in the front door.
Once in the residence, the victims claimed Lewis attacked the male victim. The girlfriend claims she saw Lewis stab him in the stomach, specifically the right upper abdomen.
Lewis then asked the victim if he “could wash his hands at the residence” before being told to leave.
Malicious assault carries a sentence of between two and ten years if convicted. Nighttime burglary carries a 1-15 year sentence if convicted.
