Man Arrested in Rosedale Stabbings


Police in Baltimore County have taken a local man into custody, charging him with attempted first degree murder, first and second-degree assault and home invasion in connection with a Thanksgiving Day attack that injured three people.

According to law enforcement officers, they received a call around 2 am on Thanksgiving morning from a residence on Nancy Court in Baltimore. Witnesses say a small group of people had gathered at the residence when a visitor arrived. The suspect apparently assaulted the visitor with a knife. A woman at the residence attempted to break up the fight, and the visitor fled.

The woman and another party at the home were taken to the hospital with multiple knife wounds to their upper bodies. The visitor who subsequently fled had minor wounds that did not require hospitalization. None of the injuries were considered to be life-threatening.
