A 28-year-old Meadville man charged in a stabbing that took place during a late-night Chestnut Street brawl in August is headed to trial.
Doneil Maurice Hamilton, 448 Poplar St., was ordered held for court after a preliminary hearing Monday before Magisterial District Judge Samuel Pendolino.
Hamilton is one of four people facing criminal charges in connection with the Aug. 10 melee that left one person hospitalized and three large storefront windows shattered. The charges against Hamilton were filed Aug. 13.
Hamilton is accused by police of stabbing a 28-year-old man during the altercation in front of Techbox, the computer repair store at 250 Chestnut St. that had its windows damaged.
The stabbing victim collapsed from his injuries, according to the probable cause affidavit filed by police in the case, and was taken to Meadville Medical Center. After hospital staff discovered a single stab wound that was believed to have injured his liver and right lung, the man was flown by medical helicopter to UPMC Hamot in Erie.
Hamilton faces a felony count of aggravated assault, misdemeanor counts of simple assault, reckless endangerment, disorderly conduct and a summary count of harassment. He remains in Crawford County jail in lieu of $50,000 bond. A trial will be scheduled for March.
