Annapolis police charged a 42-year-old city man with attempted first- and second-degree murder Tuesday in connection with a stabbing of a family member.

Derek Townsend Taylor of the 1300 block of Tyler Avenue, who was arrested shortly before midnight, also faces assault and reckless endangerment charges related to the stabbing of his 28-year-old nephew.

The incident occurred outside the Tyler Avenue residence. The victim, also a city resident, was stabbed once in the abdomen. He was driven to Anne Arundel Medical Center by a friend and then flown to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he is listed in serious condition, police said. Witnesses identified Taylor as the suspect and he is being held without bond, police said.
