Charles Robert Smith, 33, of Village Run in Harlem, was charged with aggravated assault late Monday after he stabbed an off-duty Richmond County sheriff's deputy in Harlem.

 


A Harlem man was in jail Tuesday morning after he fought with and stabbed an off-duty Richmond County sheriff’s deputy late Monday.


Charles Robert Smith, 33, of Village Run, was charged with aggravated assault.


Harlem Department of Public Safety Director David Sward said off-duty Richmond County sheriff’s deputy Kevin Harrell, 29, was walking with his wife and dogs near his home on Village Run in Harlem at about 10:20 p.m. One of the dogs started barking at Smith, who got upset and started an argument.


“They were walking their dog and Mr. Smith got irate with them,” Sward said. “They got into a physical altercation and Smith pulled out a knife and stabbed him.”


Harrell sustained lacerations to his back and chest and a dislocated shoulder. His wife was not injured.


Smith is being held at the Columbia County Detention Center on a $25,100 bond, according to jailers.


Fort Gordon public affairs spokesman Buz Yarnell confirmed Smith is posted to Fort Gordon in military intelligence, holding the rank of specialist.

Stabbing in Harlem

I hope SPC Smith from the Military Intelligence gets his just punishment. What a terrible thing to happen to a nice couple walking their pets. Prayers to a quick and complete recovery to the injured man. Another good reason for concealed carry priveleges.
