A man was ar­rested on Sun­day night af­ter al­legedly stab­bing sev­eral of his fam­ily mem­bers in­side a ve­hi­cle, in­jur­ing three men who were later air­lifted to a hospi­tal, po­lice said.

Mar­cus Mar­ques Allen, 25, of Rochester, N.Y. has been charged with three counts of at­tempted mur­der for the re­ported triple-stab­bing. The vic­tims, ages 16, 19 and 44, do not ap­pear to have sus­tained life-threat­en­ing in­juries, and are said to be re­lated to the sus­pect.

Around 11:30 p.m. on Sun­day, Charles County Sher­iff’s Of­fice deputies re­sponded to the 4300 block of Ren­ner Road in Wal­dorf for the re­port of a stab­bing. Upon ar­rival, of­fi­cers found the 19-yearold vic­tim lay­ing in the mid­dle of the road, suf­fer­ing from a stab wound to his neck, po­lice say. Fur­ther down the road, they found a 16-year-old and a 44-year-old who had also been stabbed.

All three were taken to the hospi­tal by he­li­copter.

Af­ter speak­ing with wit­nesses, of­fi­cers de­ter­mined that the sus­pect had been in­side a ve­hi­cle with four other males when he sud­denly pulled out a knife and be­gan stab­bing them, au­thor­i­ties say. One was able to es­cape with­out harm.

The sus­pect then en­tered the driver’s seat of the ve­hi­cle and fled the scene, driv­ing to a con­ve­nience store in Brandy­wine be­fore call­ing 911. He was ap­pre­hended shortly af­ter.

Po­lice say the mo­tive be­hind the at­tack is still un­clear.

A pre­lim­i­nary hear­ing date is pend­ing.
