Less than one week into the new year and King George has already had its first stabbing.
Christopher Michael Hash, a 31-year-old who is listed as a King George resident, has been charged with two counts of malicious wounding for the incident.
On January 4, slightly before 5 a.m., the King George Sheriff’s Office (KGSO) received a 911 call reporting that there was a stabbing at a residence off McDaniel Rd.
Deputies arrived on the scene to find that two adults were suffering from stab wounds. They secured the scene so that EMS could treat the injured pair who were eventually transported to the hospital.
Meanwhile, deputies investigated the incident and conducted a K-9 search of the area. KGSO said it interviewed witnesses who were at the scene, and they identified Hash as the suspect.
He was arrested. The location where that arrest occurred was not disclosed.
He is currently being held at Rappahannock Regional Jail with no bond. Hash is scheduled to have an arraignment in King George General District Court tomorrow, January 6, at 8:30.
The malicious wounding charges he faces are Class 3 felonies.
Based on Virginia’s court records system, Hash has not been charged with any other violent crimes. He was convicted of stealing a gun in 2011, a charge that he plead guilty to. The gun was not taken from a person, the records show.
