A 36-year-old Brooklyn Center man has been charged in a stabbing at a Nov. 5 gathering in Brooklyn Park.
Lamar Glass, also known as Antoine Lemar Glass and Dion Tlyson Hale, of Brooklyn Center faces one count of first-degree burglary, a felony. If convicted, he faces up to 20 years in prison and a $35,000 fine.
Around 10:15 p.m. Nov. 5, police responded to Kensington Place Apartments on the 8300 block of Zane Avenue, on report of a stabbing. They found Glass in the parking lot. According to Inspector Todd Milburn of the Brooklyn Park Police, Glass tried to flee on foot, but officers apprehended him.
Milburn said Glass was the tenant’s ex-boyfriend. He allegedly stabbed her son, an adult male. Injuries were non-life-threatening.
The burglary charge stems from the fact that Glass allegedly re-entered the apartment after being kicked out.
“Anytime a suspect enters a residence to commit a crime, it is charged as a burglary,” Milburn said in an email. “If the suspect had not entered the apartment, it would have just been assault.”
First-degree burglary includes entering a building without consent if it is a dwelling with people present, if the suspect has a dangerous weapon or if the suspect assaults someone in the building. First-degree burglary is a more serious charge than second-degree assault.
Second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon carries a maximum penalty of seven years in prison and a $14,000 fine. Second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon that causes substantial bodily harm carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine.
According to the criminal complaint, the tenant was having a gathering where multiple people were watching a football game. Glass, who was reported to be “extremely intoxicated,” got into an argument with the tenant’s son and was asked to leave. After a short time, Glass returned, and the tenant’s son told Glass he couldn’t enter. Glass assaulted him, the complaint says, and eventually pulled out a knife and stabbed him. Multiple witnesses saw it and intervened.
According to the Sheriff’s jail roster, Glass was in custody as of Nov. 9.
