Man convicted of nearly killing woman in Dalton stabbing case

The victim has since recovered

DALTON, Georgia (WDEF) – A jury convicted a Dalton man in a knife attack in 2021.

29 year old Shaquae Divine Robinson was found guilty of Aggravated Assault with Intent to Murder, Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon, and Use of a Knife During Commission of a Felony.

He was charged with stabbing Tracy Almaraz-Martinez in the neck in July of 2021.

She had let him sleep at her home for a couple of days, but then got into a fight.

The woman was hospitalized in critical condition, but fully recovered after emergency surgery.

Video showed a man running from the scene and Robinson was picked up a short time later wearing the same clothes.

Prosecutors say DNA from blood on his clothes matched the victim.

Robinson has a history of 3 felonies and two misdemeanor convictions for battery and family violence.

He was on probation at the time for making threats against a Dalton Police Officer.

He will be sentenced in January.
