Mustafa Shakhmanov, Baris Koch, Izmir Koch, Sobir Shakhmanov, Sevil Shakhmanov and Murad Koch were each indicted today on two counts of felonious assault.

The six suspects are expected to be arraigned on July 19.

Aydin Akhemdov, who was arrested the day of the incident, was not listed in the indictment handed down from the grand jury today.

UPDATE @10:30 a.m. June 8:

Aydin Akhmedov, 32, was arrested Tuesday evening after three people were sent to the hospital from a fight in the 1600 block of Valley Street, according to the Dayton police report.

Akhmedov is being held in the Montgomery County Jail on suspicion of three misdemeanor assaults and two felonious assaults, according to the jail roster.

UPDATE @6:26 p.m. (June 7): Police investigating the stabbing and fight on Valley Street have established that a former employee of a trucking company came to the business with a discrepancy over money that was owed, Dayton Sgt. Brian Hannah said.

The three people taken to hospitals all suffered non-life threatening injuries, he said. Police are working to establish a suspect in the stabbing.

Investigators put down evidence markers in the parking lot of the trucking business, SMS Trucking, 1602 Valley St., and in the parking lot of Neace Tire Store, across the street from the trucking business.

“One of the fights carried over into both sides of Valley Street,” the sergeant said.

He said investigators can confirm that a tire iron and a knife were used in the incident.

Dale, a witness, said he saw a man running from a group of people and that man was beaten by people in the group, some of whom grabbed crowbars and other items. We are identifying the witness by his first name only because no arrests have been made.

“The guy [being chased] had a knife and he stabbed one of them,” Dale said. “They were speaking in another language.”

Sgt. Hannah said the police investigation is continuing.

UPDATE @ 4:06 p.m.: Police are focused on a tire shop in the investigation into the stabbing on Valley Street.

We’re hearing from Dayton police that three people are being taken to Miami Valley Hospital and Grandview Medical Center.
