Laurel teen charged with stabbing 16-year-old after tobacco shop altercation, Anne Arundel police say

A Laurel teen was arrested after Anne Arundel County police said he stabbed a 16-year-old boy following an altercation at a tobacco shop.

The 17-year-old boy was arrested Sunday and has been charged with attempted first- and second-degree murder, felony and misdemeanor assault, among other counts, according to online court records.

He was ordered held without bond, pending a judge’s review of his bail status Monday, and does not have an attorney listed in court records. The Capital is not identifying the minor because many adult charges against juveniles are eventually referred to juvenile court.

Police said officers responded to the area of Marganza South and Wenona South around 4 p.m. Saturday after somebody called 911 in reference to an assault.

Officers learned that there had been an altercation at the Tobacco Park Store on Laurel Fort Meade Road and that the altercation carried over into an assault, police said.

The 16-year-old boy who was stabbed had apparently been in an altercation with three or four males at the shop before he left in his car, police said. But the people involved in the altercation tracked him down in the area that police responded to.

The group of assailants assaulted him before fleeing the area, police said. The 17-year-old boy stabbed the 16-year-old.

Responders took the 16-year-old to a hospital with injuries police described as non life-threatening.

Police said detectives with the department’s Western District Station are investigating the stabbing and encourage anybody with more information to call them at 410-222-6155.

If a caller wishes to remain anonymous, they can do so by dialing the county’s Tip Line at 410-222-4700.
