Two Charged in Lowell Stabbing

November 17, 2018

LOWELL -- Two Lowell men on Friday were ordered held without bail as they await trial on charges they were involved with the stabbing of a 26-year-old Lowell man who allegedly assaulted one of their ex-girlfriends.

Meanwhile, the 26-year-old is also being held without bail on charges related to the alleged assault of the ex-girlfriend.

Jonathan Ramos, 29, and Elvin Lopez, 40, both of 5 Hampshire Place, were both determined to be too dangerous to be released pending trial by Judge Tejal Mehta, according to a spokeswoman for the Middlesex District Attorneys Office.

Police say both men were involved in the stabbing of 26-year-old Sombatt Dam, of Lowell, because Dam allegedly beat up, choked and body slammed Ramos ex-girlfriend on Nov. 10 at her Garin Terrace apartment.

The woman called Ramos about the assault, which prompted Ramos, Lopez and a third unidentified man to go to the apartment and stab Dam, according to police reports.

Dam was initially hospitalized with a stab wound to the chest, but was arrested on domestic charges once he was released from the hospital.

Dam too is being held without bail as he faces a dangerousness hearing in Lowell District Court on Tuesday where a judge will determine whether he too is too dangerous to be released pending trial.
