A stabbing that happened on the basketball court at the Bel Air Middle School campus Sunday evening is under investigation by the Bel Air Police Department.
Officers arrived at University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Medical Center at 8:25 p.m. Sunday regarding a stabbing victim.
The 22-year-old man, a resident of Bel Air, had been playing basketball on the outdoor courts, part of a complex of athletic facilities between the middle school and Bel Air High School campuses, when he became involved in a “verbal confrontation” that led to the stabbing, according to Bel Air Police Sgt. Henry Marchesani.
The injury was not life-threatening, and police are seeking leads and suspects.
“There is no indication that the incident poses a threat to the security of the Bel Air Middle or surrounding schools,” police stated.
The victim was treated and released from the hospital Sunday night, Marchesani said Tuesday.
Anybody who has information should contact lead investigator Alex Maro at 410-638-4500.
“If anybody has any information, please give us a call,” the sergeant said.
