In crime news, a 34-year-old man charged with two separate stabbings on Trinity Street last month will remain behind bars unless a half million dollar judge-ordered bail is posted.
Bail was set Monday after a probable cause hearing at the Fifth Circuit Court, in which Rahman Brown – a tenant of a Trinity Street group home – was charged with stabbing two separate people during incidents on Jan. 17 and 19 of this year. The case will now go to the Sullivan County Superior Court for a possible indictment by a grand jury.
According to court documents, Brown is accused of striking the first man in the face while holding brass knuckles with a blade attached, causing a laceration to the victim’s face.
Two days later, surveillance footage from a nearby building allegedly shows Brown reaching into a vehicle to stab a man during a drug deal.
The victim in that incident was able to drive himself to nearby Valley Regional Hospital. No weapons from either incident were recovered by authorities.
