A Dundalk man is being charged with first- and second-degree assault, as well as reckless endangerment after allegedly stabbing his brother over the weekend.

Police are still trying to find Ronald Lee Mills Jr., of the 2800 block of Liberty Parkway, who allegedly stabbed his brother, Steven Eric Mills, at his Abingdon residence after a fight very early Sunday morning.

According to charging documents, Harford County Sheriff's Office deputies were called to the 3100 block of Freestone Court in Abingdon around 12:35 a.m. for a domestic disturbance with an injury.

When deputies arrived at the scene they found Steven Mills, 39, suffering from stab wounds to his upper chest and side. He was flown to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.

Family members told detectives at the scene that the brothers were at Steven Mills' home when "they began arguing and pushing each other," charging documents read. "The two continued to fight as [Ronald Mills] walked to his vehicle."

When Ronald Mills, 45, got into his vehicle, his brother grabbed the driver's side window and leaned into the car.

"Ron sped off as Steven was holding onto the window, causing him to fall," documents stated. "When Steven got up he complained that he was bleeding. Steven asked his daughter to call 911." Family members weren't sure how Steven Mills was injured.

Ronald Mills' son told a detective once at the hospital that he spoke to his father after the fight and said he had "blood all over him, as well as lacerations, scratches and swelling to his head and face," documents read. The brothers "argued over petty stuff," the son continued, "they wrestled on the ground and Ron ended up stabbing Steven." After the altercation Ronald Mills left the scene.

The son did not say what type of knife he used or where he got it.

Police do not know where Ronald Mills is and have been unable to contact him by phone.

According to a shock trauma official, Steven Mills has three puncture wounds to the upper right chest and a collapsed right lung. There is also a deep tearing wound in his left armpit. Mills was in stable condition Tuesday.
