Germantown Man Sentenced to 40 Years in Prison For 2016 Attempted Murder



A Germantown man has been sentenced to 40 years in prison for a one night crime spree in October 2016 which included attempted murder, assault, burglary, and auto theft.

On Thursday, April 5, 2018, Maryland Circuit Court Judge David Boynton sentenced 28-year-old Da’Von Mobley, of the 18900 of Grotto Lane in Germantown, to 40 years in prison for the attempted murder of a 46-year-old Germantown woman and her 19-year-old son and the events which took place in October of 2016.


According to police, it all began at approximately 8:07 pm on October 23, 2016 when the Emergency Communication Center received a 9-1-1 call that two people had just been stabbed inside of a residence in the 13300 block of Kilmarnock Way. Officers from the 5th District responded to the scene and located the 19-year-old male victim and the adult female victim outside of the home. Both victims were suffering from stab wounds.

According to court documents, the 19-year-old male was stabbed multiple times, suffering life-threatening “deep lacerations to his jugular vein” area on the left side of his neck, left temple, right upper cheek, and left upper back.

Court documents state that the 46-year-old female sustained stab wounds which created a broken bone in the victim’s left forearm.

“Today’s sentence reflects the severity of the crime, said Ramon Korionof, of the Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s Office. “Shattering a woman’s arm with the violence seldom seen in a stabbing shows how vicious this attack was. If not for the miracle workers at Suburban Hospital the victim would have died in this case, having been stabbed in the neck and facial area. Mr. Mobley will have to deal with a circumstance of his own making. We believe justice was served today.”

The victims told the officers that the suspect had been in the residence earlier but had been asked by them to leave. Approximately fifteen minutes after the suspect left the residence, he forced entry into the home through the front door and stabbed both of the victims. The suspect then fled from the home.

Fire and Rescue personnel transported the two victims to an area hospital. The male had life-threatening injuries and the female had serious injuries.

While officers were investigating the stabbing, they were approached by a resident who reported that her white 2007 Dodge Caliber, which had been parked in the 17700 block of Kilmarnock Way, was now missing. Officers observed the Caliber driving on Kilmarnock Way and attempted to the stop the vehicle but the driver refused to stop.

Officers pursued the Caliber to the area of the 17700 block of Cricket Hill Drive, where the Caliber left the roadway, traveled into a tree line, and stopped. At that time Mobley got out of the Caliber and fled on foot, according to police.

Mobley was found guilty by a Montgomery County jury in August of 2017 of one count of 2nd Degree Attempted Murder, one count 2nd Degree Assault, one count 1st Degree Burglary, and one count Motor Vehicle Theft.

Judge Boynton sentenced Mobley to 25 years in prison on the attempted murder conviction, five years for the assault conviction, five years in prison for the burglary conviction, and five years for the auto theft conviction. All sentences are to run consecutively for a total of 40 years in prison.
