A 24-year-old Omahan charged with second-degree assault in the stabbing of his younger brother was ordered held on $100,000 bail Wednesday during a court appearance at the Douglas County Jail.
Tommy Ivory also is charged with use of a weapon to commit a felony.
The judge ordered Ivory to have no contact with his 22-year-old brother, Arriante Ivory, who has been released from the Creighton University Medical Center.
Witnesses told police that Arriante Ivory was fighting with a man Saturday at 2511 Wirt St. Tommy Ivory stepped in and repeatedly stabbed his brother with an unknown object, witnesses said.
It's the second time in five years that Tommy Ivory has been charged with stabbing a brother. Tommy Ivory previously was convicted of a second-degree assault that occurred in 2008. An assistant Douglas County prosecutor said he wasn't sure if that victim also was Arriante Ivory. — Kevin Cole
