DUDLEY — A Charlton man who allegedly stabbed a teenager and later assaulted an officer was ordered held Wednesday pending a dangerousness hearing next Monday.

Dudley District Court Judge Neil Snider entered a not guilty plea for Hiram Burgos Ortiz, 52, of 28 Harrington Road, Apt. 40, to a long list of charges stemming from a home invasion. Among them are two counts of armed assault to murder, malicious destruction of property, home invasion, drunken driving, assaulting an officer, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and a few lesser charges.

According to court records, police responded to a 911 call from the Cady Brook Apartments about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday in which the caller reported his brother, Alex Marin, 17, had just been stabbed in the abdomen.

Police found Marin had been visiting another complex resident, Gilberto Izquierdo, when they heard the doorbell ring. They answered it to find Ortiz there; the report claims "he was irate and started yelling when he stabbed Alex" and entered waving a knife. Izquierdo retreated to a bedroom, and Ortiz followed, stabbing the door twice before departing and allegedly leaving the knife behind.
