Man stabbed Friday in Fairfax dies
An Arlington man who was stabbed Friday evening by an acquaintance in Fairfax County died Sunday afternoon at Inova Fairfax Hospital, in the county's first homicide of 2011.
Police said Dennis Bryant, 47, of the 700 block of South Florida Street in Arlington got into an argument and then a fight with another man about 7 p.m. Friday, in the 6700 block of Metropolitan Center Drive, in an industrial park near the Springfield "mixing bowl."
Bryant was stabbed in the upper body, police said, but his assailant remained at the scene and Bryant was taken to the hospital with wounds that were not thought to be life-threatening.
Glen A. Roberson, 43, of the 300 block of South Whiting Street in Alexandria was arrested and charged with malicious wounding. Officer Don Gotthardt, a Fairfax County police spokesman, said the two apparently "became involved in a heated domestic dispute" before the stabbing.
Police said Bryant died Sunday at 3:30 p.m. Prosecutors will now decide whether to upgrade the charge against Roberson to murder.
