Assault Arrest in Auburn

June 17, 2013

On Sunday, June 16, 2013 the Auburn Police Division arrested Eduardo O. Chilel-Lopez, age 29, of Auburn on a warrant charging him with Assault 1st Degree.  His arrest stems from the investigation of a fight call officers responded to at approximately 1:30 a.m. this same date at a residence located in the 1000 block of Duke Circle.  When officers arrived on scene they contacted Manuel Carvajal, age 28, of Auburn who had a stab wound to the neck.  He was transported by ambulance to East Alabama Medical Center (EAMC) where he was admitted for treatment.  A second victim, Marco A. Lopez, age 23, of Auburn was treated and released at EAMC for a stab wound to his back.  The fight apparently started after an argument broke out between several people attending a party at the residence.  Chilel-Lopez was transported to the Lee County Detention Center where he is currently being held on a $5,000 bond.
