Two ar­rested af­ter man beaten

Maryland Independent - - News - By AN­DREW RICHARD­SON arichard­son@somd­news.com

Two men were ar­rested early Fri­day morn­ing af­ter al­legedly beat­ing a man and point­ing a hand­gun at a by­stander out­side a Wal­dorf bar. The vic­tim suf­fered se­vere in­juries and was taken to the hos­pi­tal with a pos­si­ble bro­ken jaw, nose and or­bital bone, court records in­di­cate.

Tyrell An­to­nio Camp­bell, 28, and Mar­quis D’An­gelo Ha­gens, 27, both of Wal­dorf, were ar­rested and charged with first- and sec­ond-de­gree as­sault. Po­lice are con­tin­u­ing to in­ves­ti­gate the in­ci­dent to de­ter­mine if oth­ers were in­volved in the at­tack.

Around 2:20 a.m. on Fri­day, deputies with the Charles County Sher­iff’s Of­fice re­sponded to a bar lo­cated in the 2900 block of Wal­dorf Mar­ket Place for the re­port of an armed sus­pi­cious sub­ject, po­lice records show. Upon ar­rival, of­fi­cers found the vic­tim ly­ing on the ground in the park­ing lot bleed­ing heav­ily, and had him trans­ported to a hos­pi­tal with in­juries con­sis­tent with a bro­ken jaw and pos­si­bly other bro­ken bones in the face.

A wit­ness re­port­edly told of­fi­cers that he saw Ha­gens and Camp­bell at­tack­ing the vic­tim, “kick­ing and punch­ing [him] over and over again, leav­ing him help­less and in­jured on the ground,” court records state. When the wit­ness tried to in­ter­vene, Camp­bell al­legedly pointed a hand­gun at him be­fore he passed the gun to Ha­gens as they con­tin­ued to as­sault the vic­tim.

Af­ter po­lice were called, the wit­ness said he saw Ha­gens get into a white Acura and drive off with an­other man. This ve­hi­cle was pulled over by an of­fi­cer af­ter run­ning a red light on Crain High­way a few minutes later, and Ha­gens was ar­rested. The driver, who the vic­tim later told po­lice had also at­tacked him, has not yet been charged as of press time Tues­day. Po­lice ob­served that the driver had blood on his shoul­der and an abra­sion, and took pho­to­graphs for ev­i­dence. Camp­bell re­mained at the scene and was ar­rested.

Of­fi­cers searched mul­ti­ple ve­hi­cles be­long­ing to the sus­pects, but were un­able to lo­cate a hand­gun. How­ever, bloody clothing ar­ti­cles — be­lieved to be­long to Ha­gens — were found dis­carded near the bar.

Po­lice later spoke with the vic­tim at the hos­pi­tal, who told them he re­mem­bered see­ing at least three peo­ple at­tack­ing him: Camp­bell, Ha­gens and a woman, who was iden­ti­fied at the scene as a pos­si­ble sus­pect, court records in­di­cate. He be­lieves there were more peo­ple in­volved, in­clud­ing the driver of the Acura.

Ha­gens was ques­tioned fur­ther at the Charles County De­ten­tion Cen­ter. He told po­lice that the al­leged vic­tim pulled a hand­gun on him and that is why he be­gan at­tack­ing him, charg­ing doc­u­ments state.

Both Camp­bell and Ha­gens have posted bond and been re­leased from cus­tody, court records in­di­cate. A pre­lim­i­nary hear­ing is pend­ing for both.
