QUEEN­STOWN — Mary­land State Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing a stab­bing re­ported Mon­day, Oct. 9, in Queen­stown.

Shortly af­ter 5 p.m., the Cen­tre­ville Bar­racks re­ceived a 911 emer­gency call re­gard­ing a mann who had been stabbed mul­ti­ple times at his res­i­dence in the 100-block of Tay­lor Road, ac­cord­ing to Ron Sny­der, MSP spokesman.

A man showed up at the house around 5 p.m. and de­manded some­one come out; Re­mar Mur­ray, 27, who lives there, went out­side to see who it was, and the two got into a phys­i­cal al­ter­ca­tion, Sny­der said.

Mur­ray “was hit, was bit and then stabbed over the course of the in­ci­dent,” Sny­der said.

Po­lice said Mur­ray was hit sev­eral times in the head and mouth and was bit in his up­per right arm. Mur­ray said the man dis­played what ap­peared to be a small pocket knife and be­gan stab­bing him on the left side of his up­per body, po­lice said.

Once the fight stopped, the man sped off in what was de­scribed as a black or dark blue two-door ve­hi­cle that turned left at the stop sign, wit­nesses said.

Mur­ray was taken by Kent Is­land Vol­un­teer Fire Depart­ment am­bu­lance to the Univer­sity of Mary­land Shore Emer­gency Cen­ter at Queen­stown, where he was treated and re­leased. In­ves­ti­ga­tors met with Mur­ray there.

Mur­ray said he didn’t know who the man who stabbed him was, Sny­der said. He de­scibed him as African-Amer­i­can with shoul­der-length dread­locks.

Although there were sev­eral peo­ple in the res­i­dence, none of them could pro­vide any as­sis­tance in iden­ti­fy­ing the un­known man, po­lice said.

“We have no cred­i­ble sus­pects,” Sny­der said.

The in­ves­ti­ga­tion is con­tin­u­ing.
