Jarrettsville Stabbing Deemed Robbery Gone Wrong
While the Monday incident at first appeared to be a home invasion, police now suspect three men were visiting the victims' home then tried to rob them.
One man was flown to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore after what police now suspect was a robbery gone wrong in Jarrettsville Monday night.
Around 8:40 p.m. Harford County sheriff's deputies were called to the 1700 block of Paddock Court in response to a robbery and stabbing call, according to a release from the Harford County Sheriff's Office.
At first, police believed one man entered the home uninvited, made his way to the basement and was then confronted and stabbed by the residents, according to a release issued by the sheriff's office around midnight.
After further investigation, however, police believe three men were visiting the Paddock Court home when one of them pulled a gun and tried to rob the two residents, according to a Tuesday afternoon release from the sheriff's office.
The five men began to fight and one of the three visitors was stabbed in the stomach during the struggle, police say.
The other two visiting men ran from the home before police arrived. The remaining visitor was detained by the residents, treated by Jarrettsville Volunteer Fire Company then flown by medevac helicopter to Shock Trauma for treatment. His injuries were not life-threatening.
The investigation is ongoing.
