Two facing trouble after fight over Xbox controller leads to knifing in Jefferson County

Robert Banks Jr., and Davee Wallace faced Judge John Mascio on Thursday for a preliminary trial.

After a stabbing incident in Jefferson County in December, two people have been bound over to the grand jury on assault charges.

On Dec. 29 police responded to the scene at 1517 Foster Place to find one male victim with a laceration in his stomach, deep enough to expose his organs.

The night of the incident, the alleged suspects fled the scene, but since then have been taken into custody after voluntarily turning themselves in to police.

Robert Banks Jr., and Davee Wallace faced Judge John Mascio on Thursday for a preliminary trial.

According to Det. Regis Holzworth with the Steubenville Police Department, the suspects and victim were arguing over Xbox controllers when the fight became violent.

“(Wallace) confirmed that the fight was over Xbox controllers, and she confirmed that and that Mr. Banks did, in fact, cut the victim, Mr. Travis," Holzworth said.

Bond was set at $500,000 for Banks and $100,000 for Wallace.
