December 12, 1997

A Hagerstown man was sentenced Thursday in Washington County Circuit Court to five years in prison for the stabbing attack on a man at the Adult Book Store on Jan. 24, according to court records.

Robert Lee Fender, 36, of 227 Summit Ave., was given credit for 94 days he spent in jail following the incident at the store at 23 E. Washington St.

Judge Frederick C. Wright III ordered Fender to pay $29,673.78 in restitution to his victim, Dennis Brown, 35, of Littlestown, Pa., according to court records.

Brown was taken to Washington County Hospital for treatment of two large gashes on his right arm and wrist and a gash on the left side of his head, police said at the time of the incident.

Fender originally also was charged with first-degree assault, reckless endangerment and carrying a deadly weapon with intent to injure, according to charging documents.

Those charges were dismissed in exchange for Thursday's plea to second-degree assault.
