Abingdon man stabbed, another assaulted, in Edgewood early Sunday

Two violent incidents were reported in Edgewood early Sunday morning, with one man assaulted on Edgewater Drive and another stabbed on East Spring Meadow Court.

Harford County Sheriff's Office deputies found a 41-year-old man unconscious on the sidewalk near his home in the 1900 block of Edgewater Drive at about 12:52 a.m., spokesman Edward Hopkins said.

A 22-year-old woman came into the apartment, got involved in a fight and was forcibly removed by the apartment's residents, Hopkins said.

"For unknown reasons the victim went outside and was reportedly jumped by those five males," Hopkins wrote in an email. "Although I believe it is most likely some sort of domestic altercation, it is not completely clear from the report what the relationship is between the residents at [the apartment], the other people involved and the victim."

No charges were filed as of Sunday evening and Hopkins did not know the man's condition, although he was told the man was taken by helicopter to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.

Fight, stabbing

Sometime between 3 and 5 a.m., an Abingdon man was stabbed and another man charged with attempted murder after a fight in Edgewood, the Sheriff's Office reported.

Christopher Elias McCullough, 20, of the 1400 block of Valley Forge Way, allegedly stabbed Darrius Cornell Johnson, 20, in the chest during a fight sometime between 3 and 5 a.m. in the 1300 block of East Spring Meadow Court, according to a Sheriff's Office press release.

Sheriff's deputies were notified at 5:20 a.m. that Johnson had been brought to Upper Chesapeake Medical Center for a stab wound. He was later transferred to Shock Trauma, according to the release.

Detectives ultimately learned that McCullough may have been in a home in the 600 block of Yorkshire Drive in the Harford Square community. While patrolling the area, they saw him run from the rear of the house and apprehended him after a brief chase without further incident, according to the statement.

McCullough was charged with attempted first-degree murder, first-degree assault and second-degree assault, according to the press release.

District Court Judge Susan Hazlett ordered him to continue to be held without bail Tuesday, noting he is 20 years old and on parole and probation for a robbery.

Johnson was originally in critical condition at Shock Trauma, but was listed as stable by Tuesday afternoon, Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Cristie Kahler said.
