Airville man allegedly stabbed teen
An Airville man is accused of stabbing a Peach Bottom Township teen, according to state police.
Aubrey "T.O." Lamont Patillo, 43, of 160 Cotton Wood Road, is charged with one count of aggravated assault and two counts of simple assault, according to charging documents.
Police say Patillo stabbed the teen while confronting a man at his home Tuesday afternoon.
The allegations: State police were sent to the 2600 block of Bryansville Road about 3 p.m. for a reported stabbing, police said.
Patillo had stopped by the home of Neil Smith, who knew Patillo as "T.O.," and approached him, documents state.
Police say Patillo struck Smith in the face, causing a fight. Smith was trying to defend himself when a 17-year-old came out of the home to try to help Smith.
Patillo pulled a knife out of his pocket and lunged toward the teen, stabbing him in his left shoulder, documents state.
He then lunged toward Smith, but Smith was able to keep him back with a branch, police said.
The two continued to fight until Patillo went back to his car and fled the scene, court documents state. Smith suffered a cut behind his left ear from the fight, according to police.
An investigation led police to Patillo's home, where he was found with a black folding knife, charging documents state. While speaking with police, Patillo admitted he stopped in that area and he did stab a person there, police said.
"Patillo related that he was flagged down by a black man with dread locks and that he stabbed the person in self-defense," the responding trooper wrote in charging documents.
Patillo had no visible injuries, police said.
Police say it was later discovered that the teen had suffered a stab wound in his chest area that punctured a lung.
Charging documents do not state why Patillo allegedly struck Smith and the teen.
Maryland charges: During the time of his arrest, Patillo was wanted in Maryland on robbery and assault charges, according to Maryland court documents.
Maryland officials say Patillo had robbed a man March 12 in the 700 block of North Carollton Avenue, Baltimore. The victim had agreed to meet Patillo, who he knew as "Aubrey Love," to sell his vehicle, police said.
Patillo and a woman then approached the victim, forced him out of his vehicle, and robbed him of two cellphones and a jacket, according to police.
The victim drove to the next block and called police.
On March 14, the victim was able to pick Patillo out of a lineup of photos, court documents state.
Patillo was remanded to York County Prison in lieu of $100,000 bail, according to the York County Sheriff's Office.
His preliminary hearing is scheduled for 1 p.m. April 12 at District Judge Laura S. Manifold's office.
