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.

not typical at all besides windows being shot out, vandalism, car robberies, and house intruders and all the other nonsense

Why the >:( ? Lol

you people are over-reacting. Nobody but the intruder was injured. Especially not the children in the neighborhood. It was probably just marijuana. And marijuana itself, is harmless and until it is fully legalized, things like this will always happen. Instead of trying to get the drugs out, you should work towards legalization and
dick harden November 27, 2012 at 08:24 PM
If it was legal, this probably wouldn't have happened
Gil November 27, 2012 at 09:23 PM
And if everyone carried a gun crim would decline. You may disagree with what I just posted just as I disagree with your opinion of legalizing marihuana.
1ke November 27, 2012 at 09:37 PM
You sound real sure about that, Gil. I bet shootings would go up.
Gil November 27, 2012 at 09:43 PM
Florida passed a right to carry law and crime dropped. Criminals are cowards, if every person could be armed the criminals wouldn't know who was their easy target. I am not promoting arming everyone. I am simply against all forms of mind altering substances and making those things easy to get can only increase usage. We already have more that enough stupid people in this country. The last election proves that!

I don't know the FBI statistics on crime. I guess you can't make an omelet without breaking some eggs. Check out http://bit.ly/TsS07I . Just saying...

Interesting link 1ke. Did you notice a common thread with the people shown in your link? Here's some facts for you to digest.... Since 1991, when violent crime peaked in the U.S., 24 states have adopted “shall issue” laws, replacing laws that prohibited carrying or that issued carry permits on a very restrictive basis; many other federal, state, and local gun control laws have been eliminated or made less restrictive; and the number of privately-owned guns has risen by about 100 million.5 The numbers of gun owners and firearms, RTC states, and people carrying firearms for protection have risen to all-time highs. Through 2010, the nation’s murder rate has decreased 52 percent to a 47-year low, and the total violent crime rate has decreased 48 percent to a 37-year low.6 The FBI preliminarily has reported that violent crimes decreased another 6.4 percent in the first half of 2011, translating into a seven percent decrease in the total violent crime per capita rate. More on the subject should you care to broaden your intelligence on the subject. http://www.nraila.org/gun-laws/articles/2012/right-to-carry-2012.aspx

Actually, I am ambivalent about gun permitting, not a true believer one way or another. In short, I appreciate the the facts. I wish you had sourced it. The NRA propaganda....ehhhh. I understand the stance pretty well. What I really wonder is whether the drop in crime is a factor of the current mass incarceration of petty criminals who are Black and Latino--you know of course that the US has more people locked up than any other country in the world--and the mass exodus of people from the cities of the Northeast and Midwest. I wonder about causation not correlation.
Gil November 28, 2012 at 01:30 PM
I share your opinion as to gun permitting but the facts are the facts. When the only people with guns are criminals, it makes their crime activity all that much easier. Perhaps you recall that the State of Florida years ago had a rash of car jacking activity. When Florida passed the right to carry law the car jackings were limited mostly to rental cars! Rental cars have a unique tag in Florida. The reason for that trend was the criminals felt people renting cars were probably from another state where they couldn't carry guns. Remember criminals are not looking for a challenge, they want the easy pick! Interestingly "The Firearms Control Regulations Act of 1975" was passed by the District of Columbia city council on September 24, 1976. By 1991 DC was known as the murder capital of the United States. Hmmm, pass a law that prohibits gun ownership and murders go up, odd don't you think? That law was challenged and reversed, murders went down in DC! Most curious!

I am looking for cause, not "it happened that at the me same time" reasoning. I am not naive about crime, criminals or handguns. Without a permit, I may carry. I am unlikely to be a crime victim, unless it would be a crime against my property, in which case, I have the ultimate weapon: insurance. A couple hundred thousand Joe Citizen hard-asses running around with cannons are a graver threat to me, at least. I need to know the relationship between facts before I adopt a new policy. The courts are currently deciding. Is that OK?
Gil November 28, 2012 at 02:24 PM
I understand your feeling. I was the victim of an arsonist in 2009 which not only destroyed my home, it also took the life of our wonderful pet dog. Even though there was a strong indication of the culprit involved, fire investigators could not make a case to go forward. I also share your concern when you said, "A couple hundred thousand Joe Citizen hard-asses running around with cannons are a graver threat to me." The problem is currently there are a couple hundred thousand Joe Citizen hard-asses running around with cannons while the law abiding citizenry are unprotected. After my experience with my house being burned I realize law enforcement is overwhelmed and most crime goes unpunished! The bad guys know that as well, so sad.

Back to the subject of this news event in Jarrettsville. I happen to be an employer and see young people coming into the business to apply for a position we have offered. I am appalled at the way these people arrive to gain employment! Unprepared would be an understatement! About 50% of the people coming in and fill out the employment application stop and leave when they get to the question asking if they can pass a drug screening test! The two young lads that are the subject of this news will go down the slippery slide to poverty unless they clean up their act. I really feel for their parents but it is clear to me they are not only allowing the activity to go on they are in fact promoting the drug activity of their sons by providing a roof over they head. If the boys had to work to pay their own way, it may just open their eyes and they could become a real person! Continuation of the lifestyle they apparently have entered in most cases end badly with them becoming a statistic. Wake up Mom & Dad!
Are you kidding? November 29, 2012 at 02:09 AM
Hopefully there will be a update on Saturday because a lot of residents want the boys and the patents held accountable. This will not continue in our neighborhood!
Gil November 29, 2012 at 12:12 PM
Good luck to all of you still living in that very private and quiet area. This kind of activity is not the norm for that neighborhood and should not be tolerated. Oftentimes problems like this one are not the only problems going on in the household. It is when the problems of an individual become the problems of persons not involved that brings about correction. More times than not that correction was always there but for whatever reason the problem person was not willing to make the change. Pressure from the outside can and does bring about the correction that was needed.
