Stabbing – On June 27th at 11:38 p.m. deputies responded to the 1600 block of Candlewood Ct. Edgewood for a report of possible stabbing. Upon arrival deputies spoke with the victim, an 18 year old male, who was not stabbed but told police he was in the area and was attacked by several male suspects – one of them who had knife. He reported being able to disarm the subject and in defending himself stabbed or cut two of the men who attacked him.
Deputies then located the two subjects who were either stabbed or cut. One, a 20 year old male, was found in the 1600 block of Meadowood Court. He suffered injuries to his thigh. EMS personnel from the Joppa Magnolia VFC treated him at the scene and subsequently transported him to Johns Hopkins Bayview Hospital. A second subject, a 19 year old male, was located on Burlington Court and suffered lacerations to his upper body and was also transported by medical personnel to Johns Hopkins Bayview Hospital.
While their conditions are at present, unknown, their injuries are not believed to be life threatening. The investigation is in continuing and detectives are not releasing the names of those involved at this time.

They are asking for the public’s help.
