From Maryland State Police:
On 09/26/2009 at approximately 0335 hours, Troopers from the Bel Air Barrack were directed to respond to 1007 Conowingo Road, Bel Air, MD for a report of a stabbing that had just occurred.
Upon arrival, Troopers found the V/C, Ronald Francis Gentry, W/M, DOB 08/15/1960 of the aforementioned address to have been stabbed in the left arm and bleeding profusely. The suspect, Bryan Thomas Hewitt, DOB 10/12/1983 also of the Conowingo Road address had gotten into a physical altercation with his girlfriend, Andrea Renee Young, W/F, DOB 8/10/1984, in their bedroom on the first floor of the residence, at which time, her sister, Elaina Marie Donahoo, W/F, DOB 12/3/1991 stepped in between Hewitt and his girlfriend. Donahoo was punched in the face and grabbed by the right arm and thrown to the ground. After hearing the commotion, the step-dad, Gentry, got out of bed and came downstairs in an attempt to restrain the suspect, Hewitt. As Gentry was attempting to stop Hewitt’s assault on his step-daughters, Hewitt immediately turned his aggression towards Gentry. Hewitt was armed with a knife and slashed at Gentry, striking him in an artery in the left bicep area.
Gentry was subsequently transported to Bayview Medical Center and is listed in critical but stable condition.
The suspect, who remained on scene, was immediately taken into custody and transported to the Bel Air Barrack. The suspect was charged with attempted murder, first degree assault, three counts of second degree assault and reckless endangerment.
