27-Year-Old Man Arrested for Stabbing in Westminster

A 27-year-old resident of Finksburg was arrested for stabbing a man in the middle of a Westminster street, according to a report by The Baltimore Sun. Police first responded to the 200 block of E. Main Street around 5 p.m. on May 28 after receiving reports of a fight between five or six people, only to find a 37-year-old male stabbed in his left side in front of a pizza restaurant. After conducting an official investigation, police learned that a fight had broken out between the girlfriends of the alleged stabber and the victim, and the men had stepped in to try and break it up before it escalated.

The stabbing victim was transported to Maryland Shock Trauma for treatment and later released. The 27-year-old, who resides in the 1600 block of Deer Park Road in Finksburg, has been charged with concealing a dangerous weapon, possession of a dangerous weapon with intent to injure someone, and first-degree assault. At press time, a police spokesman stated he was unsure whether the arrested man had been processed or received bail at the Carroll County Detention Center.
