Shoot to Kill: Baltimore ranks as most lethal among nation's largest cities

Havre de Grace man accused of stabbing man in neck Sunday

A Havre de Grace man is accused of stabbing another man in a wooded area Sunday night, city police reported Tuesday.

Timothy Scott Young, 21, of the 100 block of Remington Circle, allegedly stabbed the victim in the neck after he and Young met in the woods near Lori Lane and Brian Garth, often used as a cut-through from Bayview Estates to businesses on Route 40..

The victim reported the stabbing at about 10:14 p.m. from Harford Memorial Hospital, where he was being treated for stab wounds, Ofc. Jeff Gilpin said.

The man said Young pulled out a knife and stabbed him twice in the neck area, Gilpin said.

Young allegedly then fled the area and the man was taken to the hospital with wounds that are not life-threatening. He has since been released from the hospital, Gilpin said.

The victim and suspect know each other, although Gilpin did not know how they were related or connected.

He could only identify the victim as a male.

"This incident was an isolated incident and does not appear to be drug related," he said.

Young was charged with first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and carrying a dangerous weapon, Gilpin said.

Young graduated from Havre de Grace High School and graduated at the top of his class from the North American Trade Schools, a public defender said during a bail review Tuesday.

He has several technical certifications and was supposed to start an electrician's apprenticeship Wednesday, she said.

District Court Judge Mimi Cooper ordered him held on $50,000 bail
