Man charged with violent attack in Lexington found in Tennessee

A man charged with a violent attack in Lexington is back in jail after being arrested in Tennessee.

Agents from the U.S. Marshal's Office found 28-year-old David Erwin in Knoxville, Tennessee Monday, and arrested him.

He's being held in Knoxville for now, awaiting extradition proceedings.

He was expected to enter a guilty plea last Tuesday. He had been released from bond, pending trial. He was supposed to wear an electronic monitoring bracelet on his ankle, as a condition of the bond.

But police say last Tuesday morning, Erwin cut off the bracelet and disappeared.

Police say Erwin stabbed his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend last May at a home on Forest Park Drive in Lexington.

He was charged with both assault and burglary for last year's incident.

He's also charged with violation of a condition of release.
