Brewer is accused of stabbing another man in the stomach with a large knife just after midnight Sunday morning

JOHNSTON TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WYTV) — A man remains in the Trumbull County Jail Tuesday, accused of stabbing another man inside of a trailer off Warner Road.

Steven Brewer, 33, is now charged with felonious assault.

He’s accused of a violent weekend attack in which investigators say he stabbed another man in the stomach with a large knife.

Deputies got the call just after 12 a.m. Sunday.

911 caller: “He literally ran in the back room, and he came back out and he flipped out, and stabbed him and attacked him.”

The fight happened inside of a trailer off of Warner Road.

Investigators say they don’t know what started the argument, just that it escalated into violence.

“One witness statement said the violator showed up at the residence, familiar with them. Asked for a ride, was there for a half-hour then for some reason, it turned into a confrontation,” said Chief Deputy Joe Dragovich.

According to a police report, the witness said Brewer began knocking things off a dresser in a back bedroom when he attacked the victim.

Deputies say when they arrived, the victim was holding Brewer down on the ground.

“To the victim’s credit, he was able to hold him down,” Dragovich said. “He sustained that injury — I don’t know how serious it is, but he did sustain the injury — held him down. Our deputies arrived and we were able to take him into custody.”

Brewer is being held on a $75,000 bond. Should he post it, he’s not to have contact with the victim or go within 500 feet of him.

Brewer is due back in Central District Court on November 27.
