Woodland Beach Stabbing Early Saturday Sends Man to Shock Trauma
Around 12:30 a.m. on Saturday, police were called to the scene of a stabbing at Londontown Pub in Edgewater. Anne Arundel County Police spokesman Lt. Michael Brothers said that once police arrived, they found a victim on the porch with stab wounds to the torso. He was conscious and told police that his assailant remained inside the bar.
Anne Arundel County Fire said that the victim, a 47-year-old man, was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore with serious, life-threatening injuries. Police do not reveal the identity of victims of crime.
After interviews with the victim and other patrons, police learned that the victim had offered the suspect a drink as a friendly gesture. The suspect, identified as Roberto Garcia, 64, of Riva, then began to punch and stab the victim. The police report said that another patron then hit the Garcia, knocking him down. At that point, the knife was taken away.
As of 1:30 p.m. Saturday, the victim is in stable condition.
Garcia also suffered wounds, including substantial facial injuries. He was taken by ambulance to Anne Arundel Medical Center. Brothers said that Garcia has been charged with attempted murder, first and second degree assault, and other related charges.
Police did not make a booking photo available to the media.
