Anniston police charged a man Tuesday night with stabbing a man with a kitchen knife earlier this month.

Dennis Datarvis Tippins, 36, of Anniston, was charged with felony second-degree assault, according to a police report.

Anniston police Capt. Allen George said the assault occurred on June 1 between 10:05 and 10:15 a.m. at the home of a 47-year-old man on the 600 block of East 22nd Street. George said the victim was in his living room drinking with friends when Tippins began hitting a woman in the room.

The victim tried to intervene, George said, when Tippins grabbed a six-inch knife from the kitchen and stabbed the man in the shoulder.

Tippins fled the home before police arrived, George said.

The victim was treated at Regional Medical Center for a two-inch stab wound and was expected to recover from his injuries, the captain said.

The victim and female witness were able to name Tippins, George said, and officers filed a warrant for his arrest on June 4.

Police arrested Tippins Tuesday at 8 p.m. on East 22nd Street, according to a police report. George said he believes Tippins lives somewhere near East 22nd Street.

Tippins was in the Anniston City Jail this morning, George said. Bond is set at $5,000. A court appearance is scheduled for July 11.
