for 2016 Stabbing in Southeast Washington Victim Was Repeatedly Slashed, Left for Dead WASHINGTON – Onzay Gibbs, 28, of Washington,
D.C., was sentenced today to 20 years in prison on charges stemming from the stabbing of a
man in Southeast Washington, U.S. Attorney Jessie K. Liu announced. Gibbs was found guilty by a jury in May 2018
of assault with intent to kill while armed and aggravated assault while armed. The verdict followed a trial in the Superior
Court of the District of Columbia. He was sentenced by the Honorable Ronna L.
Beck. Following his prison term, Gibbs will be placed
on five years of supervised release. According to the government’s evidence,
Gibbs and the victim knew each other from the neighborhood. At approximately 8:45 p.m. on Sept. 15, 2016,
Gibbs and the victim were walking from a dice game in the 2000 block of Savannah Terrace
SE towards the corner store. Gibbs stopped to talk with someone inside
a car on 22nd Street SE, where the victim was then forced inside the car. The victim next recalled being around the
corner in the 3300 block of 23rd Street SE, where Gibbs repeatedly slashed the victim
with a sharp object while saying “shut the f*** up.” The victim was left for dead in bushes in
the area, where he was found by someone who called 911. The victim was rushed to a hospital in critical
condition, where he was treated for 16 stab wounds to his face, neck, and body. He was cut three-fourths of the way around
his neck. Text messages recovered from Gibbs’s cell
phone showed his awareness of the victim’s condition and his efforts to avoid being identified
and arrested following the incident. Gibbs was arrested by the Capital Area Regional
Fugitive Task Force on Oct. 26, 2016, and has been in custody ever since. In announcing the sentence, U.S. Attorney
Liu commended the work of those who investigated the case from the Metropolitan Police Department
(MPD). She expressed appreciation for the assistance
provided by the FBI’s Cellular Analysis Survey Team (CAST). She also acknowledged the efforts of those
who worked on the case from the U.S. Attorney’s Office, including Assistant U.S. Attorneys
C.B. Buente and Kevin L. Rosenberg, Criminal Investigator John Marsh, Paralegal Specialists
Tiffany Fogle and Antoinette Sakamsa, and Victim/Witness Advocate Jennifer Allen. Finally, she commended the work of Assistant
U.S. Attorneys Brittany Keil and Natasha Smalky, who prosecuted the case. SOURCE- THE UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE
