Salisbury man convicted of first degree assault

SALISBURY, Md. – A Salisbury man was convicted earlier this week on assault charges stemming from an October 2018 incident.

On Tuesday, 30-year-old Jesus Samuel Torres-Gomez was found guilty of first degree assault, conspiracy to commit first degree assault, second degree assault, two counts of conspiracy to commit second degree assault, reckless endangerment, and possession a dangerous weapon openly with an intent to injure.

On October 6, 2018, police responded to a report of a person being stabbed at the basketball courts behind the Booth Street townhouses in Salisbury. The victim was treated at PRMC for non-life threatening injuries, including two stab wounds to his left shoulder and upper buttocks, along with a fractured nose and multiple contusions.

Investigation revealed that the stabbing occurred as a result of a disagreement over the basketball game, and Torres-Gomez was identified as a suspect.

Sentencing has been postponed pending a pre-sentence investigation.
