John Phillip Lambert was arrested and charged with malicious wounding after allegedly stabbing the victim in the left armpit with a pocketknife while giving him a bear hug.

Officers found three drunk individuals in the Arlandria-area apartment, according to a police documents.

“Once on scene, officers entered the apartment and discovered a male victim suffering from an apparent puncture wound to the upper body,” notes the police search warrant affidavit. “Officers… noticed an abundance of apparent blood throughout the apartment and observed what they believed to be a pocketknife on the floor of the bedroom.”   

The victim, who was transported to George Washington University Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, said that he and Lambert were arguing and drinking.

“At one point, [the victim’s] former boyfriend grabbed him in a ‘bear hug’ and when he released him, they were both covered in blood and he had an injury under his left armpit,” notes the affidavit.
