Suspects James Maraman (L) and James Powell (R) [credit: Denton PD]

DENTON (CBSDFW.COM) – Two men were arrested on Sunday night after allegedly stabbing a man during a fight over the victim’s ex-girlfriend in Denton.

According to Denton Police, the aggravated assault occurred around 8:10 p.m. in Quakertown Park near Oakland Street.

When authorities arrived at the scene, the victim — a 30-year-old male — was located near a storm drain on the west side of the park. The victim appeared to have been stabbed twice, once on his lower left side and once at the base of the neck just above the sternum.

He was transported to Denton Regional Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The two suspects — James W. Maraman, 56, and James G. Powell, 49 — approached the victim and his friends in the park, reportedly to warn him to stay away from his ex-girlfriend. An argument escalated into a physical altercation.

Witnesses say the suspects assaulted the victim with a knife, though it is unclear if both men were armed with knives. Two knives were recovered at the scene.

Maraman and Powell were arrested and are being held at the Denton Police Department Jail on charges of Aggravated Assault. The investigation is ongoing.
