A Northwest Baltimore man taken to Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in Bel Air Friday reported being stabbed while visiting his family in Edgewood.

Avery Tyrell Martin, 18, of St. Ambrose Way in Baltimore, had walked into the emergency room at the Bel Air hospital with a stab wound, according to an email from Edward Hopkins, spokesman for the Harford County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies responded around 5:10 p.m. and spoke with Martin, who said he was walking with family members on St. George Court near Court Square Drive "when he suddenly felt a sharp pain" on the right side of his lower back, according to Hopkins' email.

Martin told police he reached to feel his lower back and found blood. He initially told police he didn't see the suspects, but later said he saw two males leaving the area.

One suspect was described as a light-skinned, black or mixed race, 6 feet, 1 inch tall and 160 pounds, wearing a white T-shirt and red mesh basketball style shorts. The other was described as a light skinned, black or mixed race, about 6 feet tall and 180 pounds, wearing a blue or black T-shirt.

Avery was transferred to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore for further treatment. His wounds were not believed to be life-threatening, Hopkins wrote.
