Hernando County Sheriff’s Office released additional information about a stabbing that occurred around 4:30 p.m. Thursday at 4105 Dristol Ave. in Spring Hill.
Upon arrival, deputies met with Carl DeRoberts, 27, at the home. DeRoberts told police he stabbed Douglas Tramill, 33, after the two became involved in an altercation inside the residence, according to the sheriff’s office.
Tramill, who is listed as a professional pressure washer and computer repairman, received a non-life threatening stab wound to the upper body. When asked about the extent of his injuries, Tramill declined comment.
Via an online account registered as belonging to Tramill, statements were made that he stopped by the home to see a man there who he was repairing laptops for.
Via the account, another statement was made that DeRoberts and Tramill were arguing about a mutual friend of theirs different than the man in the home whose laptops he was repairing.
A comment also was made that Tramill has no marks on his hands, did not attack anyone and has serviced computers in DeRoberts’ home in the past.
After being stabbed, Tramill left the residence in a vehicle and called authorities from a parking lot at Springstead High School. He was transported to a local trauma center for treatment, and at press time Tramill was still hospitalized at Bayonet Point Regional Medical Center.
“I am very thankful for the people that helped me out in the parking lot, and I’m very, very grateful for the people that helped me out at Bayonet Point hospital,” Tramill said.
The investigation remains active as detectives process evidence and gather information.
