Attempted homicide: Three arrested in stabbing

Three Chambersburg residents are in Franklin County Jail this weekend, charged in Thursday’s stabbing on Burkhart Avenue.

Chambersburg Police Department gave few actual details about the stabbing, which happened at about 4:15 a.m. in the 200 block of Burkhart Avenue. They did develop three suspects, or persons of interest, and circulated surveillance camera footage and descriptions of them.

They soon had tips that helped identify them as Teon D. Patterson, 26, Destiny Ariel Pugh, 18, and Jeremy S. Seville, 29, all of Chambersburg.

Police asked for arrest warrants for all three through Magisterial District Judge Duane Cunningham’s office. By 2:45 p.m. Friday, police had all three in custody. Cunningham denied bail in all three cases during a video conference arraignment later that evening.

Charges against Patterson include:

  • Criminal Attempt – Criminal Homicide, one count, a first degree felony
  • Conspiracy – Criminal Homicide, one count, a first degree felony
  • Aggravated Assault – Attempts to cause Serious Bodily Injury or causes injury with extreme indifference, eight counts, all first degree felonies.

Charges against Seville:

  • Conspiracy – Criminal Attempt homicide, one count, a first degree felony,
  • Aggravated Assault – Attempts to cause Serious Bodily Injury or causes injury with extreme indifference, one count, a first degree felony.

Charges against Pugh:

  • Conspiracy – Criminal Homicide, one count, first degree felony
  • Conspiracy – Aggravated Assault – Attempts to cause Serious Bodily Injury or causes injury with extreme indifference, one count, first degree felony

Cunningham denied bail in all three cases, saying “no amount (of bail) could ensure public safety and (guarantee the) defendants appearance (in court).”

They face preliminary hearings in the case in Magisterial District Central Court September 7.
