Police seek assailants in in stabbing

County police said they were searching for several men who broke into a house off Pulaski Highway early yesterday and stabbed an occupant several times with a sword.

The home invasion occurred about 4:30 a.m. in the first block of Oak Grove Drive. The man who was stabbed was targeted, and the motive appears to have been robbery, said Cpl. Michael Hill, a police spokesman.

His attackers kicked in a door to gain entry and stabbed the victim with a sword they had brought with them, Hill said.

The victim was taken to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, where he was listed in serious condition, Hill said.

Three wounded In two shootings

County police were investigating separate shootings in Woodlawn and in Essex that left three men wounded Wednesday night, a department spokesman said yesterday.

The first shooting occurred about 8:15 p.m. at Fairbrook Road and Running Brook Drive. Police said four people were approached by three others, two of whom pointed handguns and fired several times.

Police spokesman Bill Toohey said one man was struck in the left shoulder and taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he was listed in critical condition.

The second incident occurred about 11:15 p.m. in Essex when an argument between two groups of men standing on opposite sides of Bayner Road ended in gunfire, Toohey said. One man opened fire, hitting two men, he said. Both were treated at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center and released.

No arrests have been made in either incident, he said. The shootings came one night after two shootings in which three men in Woodlawn and one in Carney were wounded.
