Edgewater man charged in stabbing


County police arrested a 19-year-old Edgewater man at his home early yesterday after a 26-year-old Bowie man was stabbed with a kitchen knife during a fight at the younger man's house, police said.

Leslie Paul Lechman of the 300 block of Oakwood Road was charged with first-degree assault, police said. The victim, Michael Fred Kovar of the 11000 block of Raging Brook Drive in Bowie, was in stable condition yesterday at University of Maryland Medical Center.

Police said two men were in an upstairs bedroom at Lechman's house just before midnight Sunday when they began arguing and Kovar was stabbed once in the upper torso.
