A Lawrence man accused of stabbing a 15-year-old boy at a city park is scheduled to appear in Douglas County District Court on Tuesday.

Clayton Cumpton, 21, is charged with one felony count of aggravated battery in the April 5 incident in the parking lot of Hobbs Park near 11th and Delaware streets, court records said. The stabbing victim was treated and released from the hospital the same day.

Police said the late-night stabbing happened after a fight between two groups of people.

Cumpton, who was arrested April 7 at his home, is scheduled for a brief 9:30 a.m. court appearance Tuesday in front of Judge Peggy Kittel. He’s being held in jail on $4,500 bond.

Not much bail. Guessing the victim was not 100% innocent.

where are all the comments now. Wonder if this would happen to be classified as a hate crime? I guess we will find out why this 21 year old punk has to stab a 15 year old young man.

Sorry but "good people" dont regularly get arrested or stab 15 year old kids.

I understand from one of the kids who this "good person" was attacking in the park, the fight occurred because this "good person" was confronted with the fact that night before this "good person" had cornered another 15 year old child and had beaten him so badly that that kid also had to go to the hospital. This coward even even kicked the child's head three of four times after he had already knocked the child unconscious. This was witnessed by at least ten other teenagers. This child-molesting scumbag should be sent away and never see the light of day again. He is a menace to society. If the judge lets him off again after these last two assaults against children, then the judge ought to be sent away, too.
