District Man Sentenced to Six Year Prison Term For Stabbing Man Outside of Union Station

            WASHINGTON – Julius Yancey, 37, of Washington, D.C., was sentenced today to 72 months in prison for a violent assault, in June of 2022, outside of Union Station. The sentence was announced by United States Attorney Matthew M. Graves and Chief Robert J. Contee, III, of the Metropolitan Police Department.

            According to the government’s evidence, on June 30, 2022, at approximately 2:20pm, Yancey approached the victim outside of Union Station, at 2 Massachusetts Avenue NW, Washington DC. The victim was sitting down and looking at his phone when Yancey stabbed him three times with a knife – once in the arm, and twice in the chest – for no reason and without provocation. The victim escaped and ran into Union Station looking for police officers to help him. The defendant followed the victim into Union Station while still holding the knife and stalked after him down two hallways. After about a minute, the defendant was stopped by police officers and the victim collapsed on the floor. The defendant dropped the knife when confronted with police and taken into custody. The victim received emergency medical care by officers at the scene, including an officer putting a tourniquet on his arm to stop the bleeding from the open wound located there. The victim was then transported to the hospital, where a doctor had to stitch up his wounds. At the time of this incident, the defendant was on release in a pending matter for simple assault, attempted threats, and attempted possession of a prohibited weapon in 2021 CMD 006032. The defendant has subsequently been convicted after a bench trial of these offenses, and Yancey was sentenced to 180 days straight time for each conviction, to run concurrently.

            In announcing the sentence, U.S. Attorney Graves and Chief Contee commended the work of those who investigated the case from the Metropolitan Police Department. They also expressed appreciation for the work of those who handled the cases at the U.S. Attorney’s Office, including Paralegal Specialists Tamaya Reid and Kalisha Johnson-Clark, and Assistant U.S. Attorneys Lauren “Luca” Winer, Emily Kubo, and Richard Carlton who investigated the matter.
