ROCHESTER - Bail was set for a local man accused of stabbing his alleged drug dealer seven times at a Bridge Street apartment building last week.

Noah Dumont, 18, was arraigned Monday at Strafford County Superior Court in Dover. He was ordered to have no contact with Shane Fifield if he is released on bail pending trial.

According to an affidavit for Dumont's arrest, police found Fifield, 24, at 17½ Bridge St. just before 3 a.m. last Wednesday. He was suffering from stab wounds to the face, torso, leg and hands.

Fifield was uncooperative with police at first. Witnesses told responding officers that Dumont and Fifield were fighting and offered a description of Dumont.

Neither Dumont or Fifield live at the apartment complex, police said last week.

Dumont's mother's name was on the home screen of a cellphone found at the scene.

Later Fifield told police Dumont had contacted him to buy heroin. Fifield said when the two met that Dumont pulled a knife and instructed him to empty his pockets.

Fifield said he refused. He was trying to walk away when he was attacked.

Fifield eventually admitted selling Dumont drugs in the past, the affidavit states.

Police contacted Dumont at his residence on Walnut Street. They say he was bruised, had redness near his left eye, a small cut to his right palm and other slight injuries.

Dumont told police Fifield and two black men attacked him with the knife but he escaped and ran home. Dumont said he had no explanation as to how or why Fifield was stabbed.

Dumont was arrested Friday and charged with first-degree assault with a deadly weapon. He also was arrested on a warrant for receiving stolen property.

Bail was set at $20,000 cash or corporate surety.
