Police investigate stabbing of Queenstown man
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.
