A 46-year-old man who stopped to help three people on the side of the road in Severn early yesterday was repeatedly stabbed by one of them, Anne Arundel county police said. The man was driving south on Telegraph Road near Route 100 when he saw a man and two women on the side of the road. According to police, the two men got into a dispute and the driver was stabbed in the head, chest and stomach with a knife. The victim drove himself to a nearby fire station where he was taken to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center. Joseph R.C. Clark, 25, of the 100 block of Southbridge Drive in Glen Burnie, was charged with attempted second-degree murder and first- and second-degree assault, police said. Police did not identify the victim and were unable to provide his condition but said that he was a resident of the Lanham area of Prince George's County.

Man suspected of gang involvment gets 2 years
A 20-year-old Baltimore man, described by law enforcement officials as a "catalyst for violence," was sentenced this week to two years in prison, the state's attorney's office announced yesterday. It is the longest sentence yet for Donatello Fenner, who police say was involved in a violent gang in the Barclay area but who had avoided significant prison time. In 2007, Fenner was convicted of handgun violations and received a sentence of five years with all but three months suspended. In February, he was convicted of violating his probation but received a four-year, nine-month sentence with all but six months suspended. After being convicted of violating his probation again - this time for not reporting to his probation officer - Circuit Court Judge Martin P. Welch sentenced Fenner to two years in prison on Tuesday.
