Annapolitan Indicted In Slashing At Tanning Booth

May 14, 1991|By Jay Apperson

A county grand jury indicted an Annapolis man yesterday on an assault with intent to murder charge in the April stabbing of a woman in a Gambrills tanning salon.

Ray McDonald Hoggard Jr., 24, of the 1300block of Washington Drive, was also indicted on charges of assault with intent to maim, assault and battery, reckless endangerment and mayhem, Deputy State's Attorney Gerald K. Anders said.

Hoggard was arrested after a 23-year-old woman was stabbed 23 times with a butcher knife while in a booth in the Sun Seekers Tanning Salon in the 2200 block Johns Hopkins Road. Police said a man walked into the salon through an open back door about 6:20 p.m. April 2 and tried to open each of the nine tanning booths.

The man found the last booth unlocked, pulled up the top of the tanning bed and stabbed Michele McIntire, 23, of 2000 block of Jason Court in Crofton, police said.

McIntire was critically wounded in the attack, sustaining stab wounds to her neck, arm and chest. Hoggard sustained a stab wound in his left arm during a struggle with McIntire, police said.

In 1984, Hoggard pleaded guilty to breaking into a home, holding a woman at knifepoint and threatening to rape her, court records show. He wasreleased on parole from the Maryland Correctional Institute in Hagerstown on Oct. 17 after serving about five years of a 10-year sentence.
