A suspect is in custody after detectives investigated a stabbing in Hillcrest Park in Lansdowne Sunday night.
Baltimore County Police on Monday said the stabbing occurred about 10 p.m. Sunday when a 20-year-old man fought back after a suspect brandished a gun in the park. The suspect pulled out a knife and stabbed the victim “at least once” before fleeing.
The victim was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries but is expected to survive, police said.
Detectives found a pellet gun in the 700 block of 3rd Avenue near the park. A suspect was taken into custody, though police are keeping the suspect’s identity confidential pending formal charges, according to a news release.
