According to a media release from Anne Arundel County Police spokesman Justin Mulcahy, Michael Idemudia, 27, began stabbing his sister, 20, in an unprovoked assault. When the mother, 54, heard what was going on, she intervened, and the suspect then began stabbing her.

The sister ran outside to alert neighbors, screaming and asking them to call 911.

At some point, Idemudia left the mobile home and neighbors reportedly saw him trying to hide the stabbing weapon, a screwdriver, under a storage shed. It was at that point, Mulcahy said, that neighbors surrounded the suspect to prevent him from escaping or re-entering the home.

Anne Arundel County detectives were called to the scene and the investigation is ongoing.

Idemudia was charged with attempted murder, first degree assault and second degree assault.

The mother was taken to Prince George’s County Shock Trauma, and is in stable condition. The sister was taken to Calvert Memorial Hospital. Injuries to both women were non-life threatening.
