Parkton teen charged with assault after party

A 17-year-old Freeland boy told police the day after a July 9 party in Parkton that another teen had assaulted him with a knife, a police report states.

A 17-year-old Parkton teen was charged as an adult with first- and second-degree assault and using a dangerous weapon with intent to injure. He has since been released on $50,000 bail.

According to a police report, the two 17-year-olds were at a party in a house in the 1700 block of Parsonage Road at about 10:30 p.m. when the Parkton teen allegedly held a large survival-type knife to the Freeland teen's throat and threatened to cut him. Police said a possible motive for the attack was the Parkton teen's' belief that his ex-girlfriend and the Freeland teen had a relationship.

The Freeland teen told police he was put in a headlock and forced outside, where he was thrown on the ground and punched in the face. Others at the party, including the older brother of the Freeland teen, separated the two and the Parkton teen ran away, the report states.

The brother then drove the Freeland teen home and the boys' mother drove her younger son to Greater Baltimore Medical Center, where he was treated for facial lacerations and released, the report states.

According to the police report, the Parkton teen's mother accompanied her son to the Cockeysville Police Precinct on July 11. She told police she had taken her son to St. Joseph Medical Center where he was treated for a concussion and facial contusions and released.

The Parkton teen alleges that both the Freeland teen and brother assaulted him, the police report states.

No charges have been filed against the Freeland brothers. Police continue to investigate the incident.
