A Hagerstown man was charged Saturday with breaking into an apartment on Haven Road and assaulting its resident, City Police said.

The resident, Dwayne Lionel Stones, told police that he thwarted the attack by stabbing his assailant with a kitchen knife after the attacker kicked down his door.

David Marvin Williams Jr., 30, of 639 Pennsylvania Ave., went to Washington County Hospital to seek treatment for a stab wound to his left shoulder, police said. After he was treated, officers charged him with first-degree burglary, first- and second-degree assault and malicious destruction of property.

The incident occurred shortly before 1:45 a.m. Saturday, police said.

Stones told police his attacker chased him through several rooms of the apartment. In the kitchen, Stones was able to grab the knife, police said.

The attacker apparently was distraught over Stones' relationship with a female acquaintance, police said.

Stones was treated for minor injuries at Washington County Hospital and released, police said.

Williams was freed after posting $10,000 bond Saturday night.
