A Nashville man accused in a recent stabbing of a Lebanon man surrendered to police Wednesday.

Adrian I. Lopez, 23, is charged with aggravated assault in relation to a stabbing on Aug. 26 in Lebanon.

According to police, the incident happened at about 2:30 a.m. at No. 2 Head Homes in Lebanon.

“Apparently there was an altercation in the street,” said Lebanon police Chief Scott Bowen. “We believe it was a one-on-one altercation.”

Upon arrival, officers found that a friend of the victim had already taken the victim to UMC.

The victim was then transferred to Vanderbilt with critical injuries.

Bowen said police quickly identified Lopez as a suspect, but they were unable to find him until he showed up at Wilson County Jail Wednesday afternoon.

Lopez’s bond was set at $4,000, but even if he posts bond, he’ll still likely remain in law enforcement custody.

Bowen said U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement notified him that Lopez faces deportation as “‘an alien charged with a felony.’”

“If he is released, they’ll come and get him within 48 hours,” said Bowen.

He said Lopez is from Mexico.
