Carroll man released from hospital after stabbing near lot

OWINGS MILLS -- A Carroll County man who was stabbed in the back Saturday night near a Metro parking lot has been released after hospital treatment.

Justin Reese Williams, 23, of the 3300 block of View Ridge Court in Manchester was attacked about 7:15 p.m. by two men, one of whom stabbed him twice in the back during a robbery, according to police.

Williams, an electrician, said last night that he was stabbed with a black-handled serrated knife, but during a struggle he managed to wound his attacker with it in his right leg. Williams said he was told at Sinai Hospital that the knife had come within an inch of hitting his kidney.

No arrest had been made, and the attack remained under investigation by the Maryland Transit Administration police, which has jurisdiction at the Metro station property, said agency spokeswoman Suzanne Bond.
