A Clarke County grand jury this week indicted a University of Georgia student on several felony counts in connection with an armed robbery of a fellow student who he repeatedly stabbed.
Felix Nguyen was charged with aggravated assault, armed robbery, felony marijuana possession, and three counts of possession of a knife during the commissioin of a felony, according to the indictment that was filed Tuesday in Superior Court.
Police and court documents allege that the incident happened early the morning of Oct. 24 at Waterbury Apartments on College Station Road where Nguyen met up for a drug deal with UGA student Alexander Lilly.
The meeting turned into an assault, documents indicate, when Ngyun stabbed Lilly five times while robbing him of four mason jars filled with marijuana.
Nguyen, 20 years old and whose hometown is Lawrencevile, fled with the stolen weed from the apartment complex and was arrested a short time later near the incident location by officers from the University of Georgia Police Department.
On the day the incident happened police said that Lilly's injuries were severe but not life-threatening.
Since he was arrested Nguyen has been detained without bail at the Clarke County Jail. He is scheduled to be arraiged on the indictment Dec. 19 in Superior Court.
