Colorado men arrested in stabbing over Facebook post
AURORA, Colo. — A pair of Colorado men are in jail after allegedly stabbing another man with a cellphone over a Facebook post.
According to KDVR-TV, 29-year-old Mitchell Mailand surrendered to authorities on Saturday evening and was arrested for 1st and 2nd degree assault charges in connection to the attack on a Longmont, Colorado, man last Wednesday evening.
A second suspect, identified as 30-year-old David C. Dominguez, was arrested in his Jefferson County home early Sunday morning. He has been charged with burglary, aggravated robbery, assault, menacing and criminal mischief.
Authorities allege that the pair drove to the Longmont apartment building on Wednesday evening and stabbed the unidentified 25-year-old victim over some Facebook posts.
Witnesses told KDVR that the weapon appeared to be a cellphone that had been smashed to create a jagged edge. The victim was taken to a Colorado hospital where he underwent surgery for what are described as non-life threatening injuries.
Bond for Mailand has been set at $50,000, while Dominguez’ bond was set at $25,000.
