The Carroll County Sheriff's Office reported that two teenagers suffered stab wounds in a fight that reportedly took place early Saturday morning, Dec. 15, at a private residence in New Windsor.
Both teens required medical treatment, but neither suffered wounds considered to be life-threatening, according to the Sheriff's Office.
Carroll County sheriff’s deputies had responded to 911 calls just before 3 a.m. Saturday, according to the report, regarding a fight in progress at a large party in the 1600 block of Hoke Road in New Windsor.
Deputies found a 19-year-old male bloodied, and suffering from numerous injuries to his hip and thigh. Detectives determined that he had been stabbed, and he was transported to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma by ambulance.
According to the Sheriff's Office, a fight had taken place between several people and, while attempting to break up the fight, the victim was stabbed by an unknown assailant.
Later in the morning, detectives heard from Carroll Hospital Center that another assault victim had arrived at the hospital on his own — it was later determined that this second victim, an 18-year-old, had also been at the New Windsor party, and also suffered stab wounds, to his left side.
The second victim was unable to identify the person who stabbed him, according to the Sheriff's Office.
Although serious, neither of the victims' injuries are life-threatening, and both were in stable condition as of Saturday evening.
The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Simmons at 410-386-2569 or the TIPPS line at 1-888-398-8477. Callers can remain anonymous.
