Dundalk man charged with attempted murder in Towson stabbing

A Dundalk man is being held without bail after he allegedly stabbed a man in the throat and broke a woman’s arm during an altercation Sunday morning in Towson, according to Baltimore County Police.

Police said the Jeshua Joshiah Young, 35 of the 700 block of New Pittsburg Avenue in Dundalk, awoke Sunday morning at the house of two acquaintances in the 1600 block of Yakona Road in Towson. He then forced his way into their bedroom and accused them of stealing money out of his pocket, police said.

Young allegedly displayed a knife, and the man in the room told police that Young came toward him making stabbing motions. The man was stabbed several times, and sustained wounds to the hand and throat, police said. The man was taken to Sinai Hospital with non life-threatening injuries and is expected to make a full recovery, police spokeswoman Cpl. Cathy Batton said

Batton said Young also allegedly threw a woman to the ground and broke her arm.

The couple gave Young a cell phone and cash, and he drove away in a Chevrolet Suburban, Batton said. Young was later located and arrested, Batton said, though she did not specify how he was apprehended.

According to online court records, Young was charged with attempted second-degree murder, carrying a weapon with intent to injure, and two counts each of first-degree assault, second-degree assault, and robbery.

He is being held without bail at Baltimore County Detention Center, Batton said.
