Man Held With Out Bail In Adams Stabbing
The Berkshire Eagle reports an Adams man is being held without bail after police say he stabbed another man during an altercation Monday night.
A dangerousness hearing for Anthony D. Chambers on Wednesday was continued until next Wednesday in Northern Berkshire District Court. Chambers, 33, is facing five charges, including armed assault with intent to murder.
The altercation took place around 9 p.m. outside an apartment building on Winter Street in Adams. According to the criminal complaint, four people were involved, including Chambers and the victim, Jai Marshall, 25.
When police arrived, Chambers had allegedly run off over a pedestrian bridge. He was later located in a residence with several others on Winter Street. The Berkshire County Special Response Team was called in, and a negotiator convinced Chambers and the others to come out. Chambers was detained without further incident. There were no other arrests.
According to the court documents, none of the witnesses at the scene would cooperate with the investigation. The victim also declined to cooperate and refused to identify his assailant.
Adams Police were assisted by the Massachusetts State Police.
Marshall was taken to Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield for treatment of an injury that was not life threatening. Chambers is being held at Berkshire County Jail and House of Correction.
