Salisbury man sentenced for first degree assault

SALISBURY, Md. – A Salisbury man was sentenced earlier this month, after being convicted of first degree assault back in May.

The charges date back to October 6, 2018, when police were called to Booth Street in Salisbury for a reported stabbing. It was determined that 30-year-old Jesus Torres-Gomez stabbed someone as a result of a disagreement over a basketball game being played on the courts behind Booth Street townhouses.

The victim was taken to PRMC for treatment of multiple non-life threatening stab wounds and other injuries.

Torres-Gomez was also convicted in a separate trial for separate charges of second degree assault and reckless endangerment, in which he threatened a woman with a knife. He was sentenced to 12 years for the first degree assault conviction, and five years for the second degree assault incident. Both sentences will run consecutive, for a total of 17 years in the Department of Corrections.
