In a case that’s been in the news for months, a man has been charged with stabbing a man in the head with a “black hooded” hoodie.
Martin Marietta, 21, is charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault and criminal mischief in connection with an attack that happened in a parking lot in the parking lot of a local pizza restaurant on March 31.
The victim, a 22-year-old man, was walking down the street with his girlfriend and her two children when they encountered a man who allegedly stabbed the victim in the face, police said.
The victim was treated at the scene for injuries to his face and was taken to hospital, where he later died.
Police said the victim, who has not been identified, was in a relationship with Marieta at the time of the incident.
Police were called to the restaurant by a woman who saw the man standing outside with the victim.
When police arrived, they found Marietat with the man, who had a black hoodie around his neck and a knife, police told CBC News.
The suspect is believed to have fled the scene in a white SUV, which had the license plate number “WX9,” according to police.
Police did not say where the vehicle was taken.
Marieta is scheduled to appear in court on April 4.
