Brandon Robinson, accused of turning a Thanksgiving dinner invitation into an attack that injured three, was scheduled to be in Maricopa County Superior Court Tuesday, Dec. 17.
Robinson, 32 of Peoria, faces three aggravated assault charges.
According to victim statements obtained by Avondale Police, Robinson met two of his alleged victims at a bar two nights before Thanksgiving. When Robinson told them he had no place to go for Thanksgiving, the Avondale residents invited him to their home on Apache Street, near Estrella Vista Elementary school in southern Avondale.
According to one of the three victims, Robinson arrived to the home by Uber or Lyft, then “after 15 minutes began to act crazy, then grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed all three victims.”
A male victim was stabbed seven times. He required emergency surgery for collapsed lungs.
One of the female victims also required emergency surgery after Robinson allegedly stabbed her five times in the chest and neck.
The third victim, a female, was stabbed once and refused medical treatment. She provided information to Avondale Police that led to the arrest of Robinson. Police found him two blocks from the home where the stabbings occurred.
According to police, Robinson had a deep cut on his left hand. He gave as his residence an address on West Palm Road in Peoria.
Robinson has been in the Maricopa County Fourth Avenue Jail since his Nov. 28 arrest.
