New video released of wild police chase after attempted murder in Germantown
GERMANTOWN, Md. (ABC7) —
A Montgomery County man faces up to 75 years in prison after being convicted in the brutal stabbing of a man once considered his friend.
A jury found 27-year-old Da’von Mobley guilty of five felonies, including attempted second-degree murder.
The case stemmed from what happened the night of October 23, 2016, in a Germantown neighborhood just south of Northwest High School.
Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s Office spokesman Ramon Korionoff says the victim and Mobley got into an argument in an apartment at 13308 Kilmarnock Way.
During the argument, Korionoff says Mobley spit on the victim’s mother, leading to a fight. Although smaller in size, the victim got the better of Mobley in that fight.
“The embarrassment caused Mr. Mobley to go out and get a knife, and burst back into the apartment,” Korionoff said.
Mobley then stabbed the victim multiple times in the head and neck. The victim’s mother was also hurt when she tried to intervene.
Mobley then jumped off the apartment’s second floor balcony, then went nearby and stole a car. The car was spotted after police arrived.
Police chased Mobley. After driving into the backyard of a home on a cul-de-sac on Cricket Hill Drive, Mobley got out of the car and ran. He was eventually cornered by police and arrested.
On Thursday, a jury convicted Mobley of Attempted 2nd Degree Murder, Home Invasion, 1st Degree Burglary, Auto Theft and 2nd Degree Assault.
Mobley’s sentencing is scheduled for November 17 at 1:30 p.m.
Korionoff says the victim was clinically dead at one point but survived. He was in a coma for two weeks and, although doing much better, is still recovering from his injuries.
