Montgomery County police announced they have arrested an 18-year-old Aspen Hill man in the Wednesday afternoon stabbing of a 19-year-old pregnant woman in a wooded area in Kensington.

Police identified the man Thursday as Dakota Brothers, of the 13400 block of Lydia Drive. He has been charged with attempted first-degree murder and first-degree assault. He is scheduled to appear for a bond hearing at 1 p.m. Thursday in Rockville District Court.

A preliminary investigation found the woman had agreed to meet Brothers, who is believed to be in a relationship with her, on Wednesday afternoon. When the two met on a path in a wooded area near 3015 Upton St. around 3 p.m., he allegedly stabbed her multiple times, according to police.

The woman, who was several months pregnant, was stabilized by emergency responders at the scene and transported to an area hospital for treatment, where police said she provided the name and description of Brothers to investigators. She remains at the hospital in critical condition, according to police. Police have not confirmed whether Brothers is the father of the woman’s baby.

Police arrested Brothers around 4 p.m. Wednesday after he got off a bus at Palmira Lane and Dauphine Street in the Aspen Hill area.
