After making the rare move of publicly disclosing the name of a man critically wounded in a dispute last week, Anne Arundel County police said Thursday they found the relatives they were hoping to locate to make decisions about his medical care.
Police said that David Lamont Harley, 45, of the 8000 block of Fair Breeze Drive, was involved in a fight with a male friend last week, in which he received life-threatening injuries. He was taken to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, and he remains there, police said.
Police spokesman Justin Mulcahy said police released Harley's name Monday after they couldn't locate relatives needed to "make decisions regarding his treatment."
Police responded to Harley's home last Thursday for a report of a "sick or injured" person, and interviewed several people there, including the friend involved in the altercation, police said.
No charges have been filed against the man's friend, and it is not clear if any will be, Mulcahy said. He said he could not provide information about the dispute or injuries because the investigation is continuing. Detectives are consulting with prosecutors, he said. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Jason McNemar at 410-222-3463 or Anne Arundel police at 410-222-8610.
