WORCESTER – A man who slashed a police officer with a steak knife early Sunday morning was ordered held without bail for a dangerousness hearing next week in Central District Court, according to Worcester County District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr.

Patxie Delorbe, 30, of Apt. 42 Byron Street, Worcester, pleaded not guilty to the charges: violating an abuse-prevention order, resisting arrest, two counts of assault and battery on a police officer, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and assault with intent to murder.

Judge Andrew M. D’Angelo ordered him held without bail for a dangerousness hearing on July 27. Also on that date, the judge will consider a motion by the District Attorney’s Office to revoke Delorbe’s bail on an open district court case.

Assistant District Attorney Edward N. Karcasinas Jr. told the court police officers were called to an address on Grand Street for a report of threats and violations of a restraining order. Police encountered a combative Delorbe who was threatening his ex-girlfriend. The defendant was tased and one of the officers was slashed in the face during the altercation, Karcasinas said.
