Armed Robbery / First Degree Assault

[November 20, 2012, Jarrettsville, MD] — On November 19, 2012 Harford County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to the 1700 block of Paddock Court in Jarrettsville for a reported robbery and stabbing through 911. When deputies arrived they located a male in the basement who was being held down by two males who reside in the residence. The detained male was bleeding from the stomach area from a stab wound that he sustained during a struggle that occurred between him and the two occupants. The injured male was initially treated by personnel from Jarrettsville Volunteer Fire Co. and later transferred by MSP aviation to Shock Trauma for non-life-threatening injuries.

Preliminary investigation revealed that three males were visiting at the residence one of which pulled out a handgun and attempted to rob the occupants. A fight broke out between all parties involved and one of the suspects was stabbed in the stomach and detained by the two occupants until sheriff's deputies arrived on scene. The other two potential suspects fled from the residence prior to deputies' arrival.

This investigation is still ongoing pending the identification of all parties involved and review by the States' Attorney’s Office.
