Damascus Man Stabbed in His Backyard by Unknown Assailant

Montgomery County Police are investigating the stabbing assault of a Damascus resident by an unknown suspect while he was in his backyard late Sunday night.

5th District Commander, Captain Mark Plazinski said that a 26-year-old male was stabbed while he was in the backyard of his residence in the 27500 block of Ridge Road in Damascus at about 11:45 pm on Sunday, Oct. 15.

“From the face of it doesn’t match the type of crime that we would normally get,” said Plazinski. “There are two brothers who live in the basement of this house in Damascus. One of the men gets up to walk outside in the back to urinate, and somebody comes up from behind him and stabs him in the chest and flees the area possibly in a vehicle.”

The unidentified victim was transported via MCFRS EMS to the University of Maryland Medical Center - Baltimore Shock Trauma Hospital with Priority 2 wounds to the right side of his chest.
