A 28-year-old Baltimore man has been charged with attempted murder after Howard County police found him walking in Marriottsville with a bloody folding knife and a ski mask, police said Thursday.
Jonathan Logan is charged with attempted first-degree murder, assault and burglary after police say he stabbed a Marriottsville resident in his garage on Wednesday night.
At 9:37 p.m. Wednesday, Howard police responded to the 11100 block of Willow Green Way where officers found Marriottsville resident Gary Polinsky, 57, suffering from stab wounds to his abdomen.
Polinsky told police he was taking out his trash in his attached garage when he was approached by an unknown man wearing a ski mask who began stabbing him. Polinsky told police the man then fled on foot. Police said they found Logan walking in the area with a bloody knife and ski mask in his pocket and arrested him.
Polinsky was transported by helicopter to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, where he was listed in critical condition Thursday.
Howard police believe Wednesday’s incident was a random attack and said there is no known connection between Logan and Polinsky. Police are continuing to investigate.
Logan is being held without bond at the Howard County Detention Center.
