Allegations: Brendon Bevans, who appeared "frantic," was found by police in the first block of Wirt Avenue shortly before midnight Sunday night, documents state. Bevans told police he had been stabbed by Weatherly at Weatherly's apartment.

Bevans also said his friend, Brandon Shearer, had been stabbed in the head by Weatherly, according to police.

Bevans told police he had a verbal altercation with Weatherly over stolen property and that altercation turned physical, documents state.

Weatherly took out a red pocket knife and stabbed Bevans in the left arm, police said.

After being stabbed, Bevans ran outside and Weatherly then injured Shearer, court documents state.

Shearer, who was at Hanover Hospital, told police that Weatherly threw an unknown object that hit him in the head, causing serious bleeding, documents allege. Shearer was not sure what it was but said he pulled the object from his head by a handle and threw it back onto the property, police said.

He said his friends drove him to the hospital.

Weatherly: Police went to Weatherly's residence  about 1 a.m. Monday. Weatherly was on the porch when police approached, and "several areas" of blood, both on the sidewalk and in the grass of the front yard, could be seen, police said.

Weatherly was placed under arrest, and police say a red Snap-On knife with a 2.5-inch blade was found in his left pocket.

While in custody, Weatherly admitted to having a physical altercation with Bevans and Shearer and that he did have the knife with the blade exposed in his hand during the altercation, according to court documents.

Weatherly was arraigned on the charges last Monday. Senior District Judge Douglas F. Meisenhelter set bail at $20,000. Weatherly does not have an attorney listed.

His preliminary hearing is scheduled for 3:45 p.m. June 27 at District Judge James Miner's office.
