A 23-year-old man suffered serious injuries when he was stabbed at a Timonium hotel following a New Year's Eve party, a Baltimore County police spokeswoman said.

County police were called at 2:47 a.m. Tuesday to Crowne Plaza Hotel on Greenspring Drive, where witnesses told the responding officers that a person had been injured but had left the hotel in a vehicle, said police spokeswoman Cpl. Cathy Batton.

About half an hour later, she said city police reported that the man who had been stabbed at the hotel was being treated at a city hospital.

The victim, who had been stabbed in the upper body, told investigators that he had a friend drive him to the hospital, Batton said. He had been at a New Year's Eve party at the hotel and while in the main lobby area, he got into a brief argument with the suspect. He told police he did not know the suspect.

Batton said the victim suffered serious injuries and remained at the hospital on Wednesday.

Police have not made any arrests.
