A 29-year-old man is recovering from a stab wound to his upper body after an altercation Monday morning in Edgewood, and his alleged attacker is charged with attempted second-degree murder.

Stefon Antonio Hayes, 32, of the 600 block of Harr Park Court in Edgewood, is also charged with first- and second-degree assault, and carrying a concealed dangerous weapon. Hayes is being held at the Harford County Detention Center without bail pending a bail review hearing Tuesday afternoon, according to electronic court records.


Deputies from the Harford County Sheriff's Office southern precinct responded to the University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in Bel Air around 2:38 p.m. Monday for the report of a patient with a stab wound, according to a news release.

Brandon Antonio Muldrow told police the incident occurred around 11:30 a.m. Monday in the 1600 block of Candlewood Court in Edgewood. Muldrow was taken to the hospital by a private citizen, according to police. His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

Investigators learned that another person, later identified as Hayes, walked into the hospital at about 12:30 p.m. Monday with a laceration on his hand. He was treated and released.
