Two more arrests in P.G. party bus stabbing
Question of the Day
Two additional men have been arrested in connection with the fatal stabbing of a Clinton man who was attacked after exiting a party bus in a Seat Pleasant neighborhood, Prince George's County police said Thursday.
The arrests bring to three the number of people facing charges in a June 26 attack that killed Henri' Dominic Pratt, 26, and injured his 24-year-old friend.
Brandon Lytle, 24, and Davincio Coleman, 22, were arrested Wednesday in Maryland, according to Prince George's County police and court documents. Demir Michael Stevenson, 23, was arrested Wednesday in the District. All three of the men are from Capitol Heights, according to court documents.
Mr. Stevenson, who was in D.C. Superior Court Wednesday for an extradition hearing and agreed voluntarily to be transferred to Prince George's custody, will be charged with first-degree murder once he is transferred into the county's custody, according to Superior Court documents.
Mr. Lytle and Mr. Coleman have already been charged and are being held without bond, according to Maryland District Court records. Mr. Lytle faces charges of first- and second-degree murder and two counts each of first- and second-degree assault. Mr. Coleman faces attempted first- and second-degree murder charges, indicating he may be suspected of attacking Pratt's friend while the other two are believed to have attacked Pratt.
The night of Pratt's death, his family said he and two friends took a ride on a party bus, which drove passengers around the region.
Pratt's cousin, Tiffany Pratt, said she was told by people on the bus that at one point during the ride Pratt broke up an altercation between one of his friends and someone on the bus he didn't know.
When the party bus returned to the Seat Pleasant neighborhood where it had picked up the passengers, several people who were waiting near the stop attacked Pratt and one of his friends, Ms. Pratt said. She thinks the people who her cousin confronted on the bus contacted the others and directed them to attack him.
Pratt was stabbed 27 times and his friend eight times, Ms. Pratt said.
Funeral services for Pratt, who leaves behind a 3-year-old daughter, were scheduled for Thursday.
