On April 8, 2013, at approximately 5:45 p.m., officers from the Western District responded to the 1500 block of Crownsville Road in Crownsville for a report of two men fighting. Additional information was relayed to police indicating one of the men was armed with a knife.     

Upon arrival, officers separated the two men and recovered the knife that was believed to have been used in the incident. Initial investigation indicated that the suspect became enraged as he was looking for his roommate to give him a ride home from his place of employment only to find that his roommate was at home. It was learned that the suspect arrived home and assaulted his 40-year-old male roommate. According to the victim and at least one witness, the suspect pulled out a hunting knife and threatened to stab or cut the victim. The victim then attempted to flee when the suspect threw the knife at the victim two times, missing both times.

Responding officers arrived and arrested the suspect. The victim sustained a small laceration on his forearm at some point during the incident, but refused medical treatment. The suspect was charged with Attempted Second Degree Murder, First and Second Degree Assault, Reckless Endangerment and related charges.
