Anne Arundel police have charged a Lothian man with attempted first-degree murder in the stabbing of a 50-year-old man with whom police say he was acquainted.
Jerome Otto Waters Sr., 55, of the 5200 block of Sands Road, also faces assault and reckless endangerment charges in connection with the incident that occurred early Saturday near his home.
Officers, who were called to the 1300 block of Mount Zion-Marlboro Road at 5 a.m., soon determined that the assault had taken place in the 5400 block of Sands Road, near Patuxent River Park and in the same Lothian area.
The victim had sustained multiple stab wounds to his upper body and had been driven to an ambulance service by a friend. The victim was taken to Prince George's Hospital Trauma Center for treatment of injuries that police said are not life-threatening.
Witnesses told police that the victim and suspect knew each other and had become involved in an argument. The victim and several witnesses were able to identify the suspect.
