PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. (April 19, 2010) - The Calvert Investigative Team (CIT) today released the following report regarding a stabbing in Solomons on Friday, April 16.
"On April 16 at approximately 11:54 p.m. the Calvert Control Center received a call through 911 Emergency Services at which time they were advised that an individual had been stabbed and was in the area of the Solomons Urgent Care at 14090 H.G. Truman Road, Solomons.
"Units were subsequently dispatched to the area and made contact with the victim, a 24-year-old male of Lusby, sitting on a curb in the area of the Urgent Care. Deputies on scene observed a significant amount of blood in the abdominal region of his shirt coming from an apparent stab wound, in addition to a small laceration on his forehead. During the course of the initial observation of injuries, contact was made with three passers-by who observed the victim sitting on the curb bleeding from his abdomen and called 911. The passers-by had not previously been familiar with the victim and were visitors to the area but did advise that they observed two white males in their mid 20's between 6'2 -6'4, wearing a red checkered shirt and a tan tank-top style shirt walking away from the victim toward the area of the 7-11 in an adjacent strip mall. Written statements were later obtained regarding the course of events from the three witnesses.
"Det. N. DeFelice arrived on the scene from the Solomons area at which time contact was made with Dfc. J. Morgan who advised that he had contacted the victim, who was not cooperative, at the scene. The victim refused to provide information relating to the case including the area in which the incident took place and who was involved. Morgan continued to advise that the victim's friends were present on scene but refused to provide information to assist officers in the identification of the suspects. The victim was placed in an ambulance and ultimately transported to P.G Shock Trauma via Maryland State Police Trooper 7.
"The description of the suspects that was given by the witnesses was disseminated to units in the Solomons area. The canvas yielded negative results as Det. DeFelice responded to P.G Shock Trauma to make contact with the victim. The victim advised that he had an exchange of words with two individuals and he was struck in the back of the head. The victim stated he then went behind Our Lady Star of the Sea Church and confronted four males. He further stated that the individual who had struck him in the back of the head brandished a pocket knife and stabbed him in the stomach and swung at his face. The victim advised that after he realized he was stabbed, the four individuals fled towards the area of Stoney's Restaurant.
"The victim's wounds are non-life threatening. This case remains under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact Det. DeFelice at 410-535-2800 ext. 2669."
