Frederick Police Make an Arrest in Stabbing Investigation on Alban Court (CID). Update #2

Dominguez-Lopez.jpg

Frederick Police Detectives have been working tirelessly to identify and arrest the suspect(s) responsible for a brutal knife attack on a man and a woman on 8/28/2015, on Alban Court in Frederick, MD. On 08/31/2015, detectives were able to identify and arrest Juan Enrique Dominguez-Lopez (DOB:10/13/1996) for charges related to the assault that put both victims in the hospital with serious injuries.

It was based on evidence collected and information received through numerous interviews with witnesses and community members, that lead detectives to the positive identification of Dominguez-Lopez as one of the suspects involved in the attack. Mr Dominguez-Lopez was identified as one of the suspects who attacked the male victim with a large "machete style" knife causing critical injuries requiring the victim to be airlifted to Baltimore Shock trauma where he underwent surgery to save his life. Mr Dominguez-Lopez's actions resulted in severe injuries to the male victim who is still listed in serious condition at an area hospital where he is recovering from his injuries.

Based on the severity of the attack and the amount of violence delivered on the victim, Mr Dominguez-Lopez faces numerous felony charges including Attempted 1st Degree Murder, 1st degree assault and 1st degree burglary. Mr Dominguez-Lopez was arrested on August 31, 2015, and transported to the Frederick County Adult Detention Center where he is being held pending an appearance before a district Court Commissioner.

This investigation is still open and ongoing while detectives continue their efforts to identify additional suspects in this case.

Any questions related to this release can be directed to Lt Clark Pennington, Frederick Police Department's Public Information Officer, at 240-818-7022

Frederick Police Arrest man on Gun and Drug Charges. (1:00 display of seized material at FPD HQ)

stoltzfoos.jpg

The Frederick Police Department invites members of the media to view a large quantity of seized material from a long term investigation, which wrapped up last week, resulting in the arrest of two men. The display will include firearms and drugs seized during a search and seizure warrant. The display will be available today at 1:00 pm, at Frederick Police Headquarters, 100 W. Patrick St., Frederick Md.

In July 2015, the Frederick Police Department's Drug Enforcement Unit received information regarding the illegal distribution of CDS in Frederick City. During the investigation suppliers were identified, one of which was found to be illegally manufacturing and selling AR-15 assault rifles. FPD Drug Enforcement Officers and Agents from the Homeland Security Investigations were able to infiltrate the network using an undercover officer. During the month long investigation the undercover FPD officer was able to purchase two illegally manufactured AR-15 assault rifles. The officers determined the suspect was legally purchasing AR-15 rifle parts, assembling them, and effectively manufacturing assault weapons without serial numbers that were untraceable – and then illegally selling them to individuals. In addition to the assault weapons, the undercover officer was also able to make multiple purchases of marijuana from Schumaker.

A search and seizure warrant was then conducted at a home on Amy's Ter, Mount Airy, Maryland, in which the following was recovered from the location.

-$3,600 U.S. Currency
-Approximately one pound of marijuana with a street value of $3600-homemade suppressors for firearms
-multiple smoke projectiles-30 rd handgun magazines
-28 firearms including the two purchased during the investigation-assault rifle manufacturing equipment
-multiple body armor vests

Investigators were later able to locate and identify the supplier from which the pound of marijuana originated. It was determined during the investigation that the supplier was trafficking the marijuana supply into Frederick County, Maryland from New York. A subsequent search warrant was executed at the supplier’s house which was located on Woodville Rd, Mt Airy MD. At that location three more assault rifles, a small amount of marijuana, bath salts, scheduled prescription pills, and approximately $4500 in cash were seized.

Arrestees:

Daniel Allen Schumaker Jr 12/13/19906161 Amy’s Terrace
Mt Airy

Christopher Bryce Stooltzfoos 09/07/19825522 Woodville Rd
Mt Airy

The Frederick Police Department is thankful for the cooperation and partnership we have with our Federal law enforcement agencies, and particularly the Homeland Securities Investigations of Frederick, Maryland, which resulted in this significant seizure and these two arrests.
