Riverton man faces battery and reckless endangerment charges after stabbing incident

    On October 28, 2018, Riverton Police Department officers were dispatched to College Hill Drive in Riverton after a call came in about a stabbing.

    RPD officers observed a woman that appeared to have been stabbed on both her arm and hand. Officers described a “two-inch laceration” on the woman’s arm, and “one-inch long” laceration on her hand.

    Officers also noted the woman had a “large contusion to her eye” and that it was, “swollen and bruised.” The woman and a witness told officers that 31-year-old Lamar Duran had assaulted her.


    The witness on the scene said that he had seen Duran, “punching and kicking” the woman in their living room. The witness also said Duran grabbed a knife and stated, “Let’s cut this B—-.”

    Duran was contacted outside of the house by authorities and attempted to flee the scene. He was apprehended after a brief chase two buildings away from where the incident occurred.

    On November 30th, Duran’s initial hearing was waived. The matter will be transferred to District Court for arraignment at a later date.

    Duran faces one count of aggravated assault and battery and one count of reckless endangering. Those penalties combine for a possibility of up to 11 years of imprisonment.


    All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
