Stabbed man still in hospital

A Louisiana man remained hospitalized yesterday after being stabbed on the parking lot of a Wal-Mart in Laurel after an argument with an unknown suspect, police said.

The incident occurred about 6:15 p.m. Sunday on the parking lot of Wal-Mart at 3549 Russett Green East after someone approached David Clyde Smith asking for spare change, according to Anne Arundel County police.

Smith declined the request, and an argument ensued. Smith told police he thought the suspect punched him, but he later realized he had been stabbed in the stomach. The assailant fled on foot.

Smith was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he had surgery.
