A brawl in Baltimore County's Turners Station neighborhood left a 19-year-old man with seven stab wounds and another victim, two years younger, with a knife wound to the neck, police said Friday.

Two suspects were arrested and a third turned himself in after the incident late Thursday on New Pittsburg Avenue, said Lt. Robert McCullough, a police spokesman. All three were charged with assault to commit murder and first-degree assault.

McCullough said the two victims and the three assailants, all of whom knew one another, got into a fight about 10 p.m.

The most seriously wounded of the victims was identified as Thomas E. Davis of the 500 block of Main St. in Dundalk, who was in critical condition at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center with multiple stab wounds, some in his back. The 17-year-old who was slashed in the neck lives in Baltimore's Park Heights neighborhood and is expected to survive, McCullough said.

The three men charged in the case were identified as Keith Jordan, 19, of the 400 block of Maple Lane in Dundalk, who turned himself in at the North Point precinct station just as police were preparing an arrest warrant for him; Jabari Hawkins, 20, of the 500 block of New Pittsburg Ave., who was arrested outside his home, a block from where the incident occurred; and Jerrod Sutton, 19, who was picked up separately and for whom no address was provided.

McCullough said the confrontation between the men escalated when Jordan "pulled out a knife and attempted to cut Davis." Instead, Jordan struck the 17-year-old, "who's actually a friend of his," the spokesman said.

At that point, Davis fled, but Jordan caught up with him and stabbed him seven times, McCullough said, adding that Hawkins and Sutton "jumped in and attacked Davis also."
