UPDATE (Jan. 4, 1:54 p.m.)—Baltimore County police have released a description of the man who they say stabbed two men Thursday evening in a Perry Hall neighborhood near White Marsh. 

The suspect is a black male, between 18 and 25 years old, with a slim build and was wearing all dark clothing, police spokeswoman Cpl. Cathy Batton said. 

The two injured men were 19 and 20 years old, Batton said. She did not indicate where the victims were from or why they were in the area, citing the ongoing investigation.

Police announced in a Friday morning release that the Baltimore County Police Violent Crimes Unit was continuing its investigation of the stabbing. 

Shortly before 7:40 p.m. on Thursday, in the 5000 block of Hilltop Acres Road, two men were stabbed after getting into a fight with an unknown person. The two men then ran to the 8600 block of Winding Way off Silver Spring Road, where they called 911 for help, according to the release. 

The victims were transported to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, police said Thursday night. As of Friday morning, one of the victims had been released and the other remained at the hospital, the release stated. 

Area residents told Patch that a police helicopter and unit of police dogs responded to Hilltop Acres Road shortly after the incident to search for a suspect.

@Andrea, I was told by a detective that it looked like there was drugs involved and not a random act of violence. I specifically asked this detective because I have a son that goes back and forth to friends houses and I wanted to make sure some freak wasn't just running around stabbing people.

@Andrea, I was also at the crime scene and spoke directly to the detective because I live 5 houses from where it occurred. So needless to say I was quite upset and wanted some answers so that I could be ensured of my son's safety. Drug transactions sometimes happen in the best of neighborhoods so I'm not going to be naive and say our neighborhood is except from this behavior. In the past 3-4 yrs. on my street alone (Winding Way) there has been 2-3 break ins. My neighbors next to me had their home broken into last year, neighbor across from me was the yr. before and my in-laws directly across the street from me had their garage broken into the yr. before that. Ooooops almost forgot the neighbor up the street had their vehicle stolen right out of their driveway and now we get this. Needless to say this definitely will not be my forever home.

Andrea, in as much as I don't need my daughter to help explain my comment, the facts are that neither of these two POS belonged in the neighborhood as it doesn't take Einstein to figure out why they were in the area. Personally I have lived in the Perry Hall area over 50 years and it has totally gone to the dogs with its never ending growth and the bringing in of all the section 8 ghetto trash. Years past it was a beautiful place to live and raise your family, but as it has turned out people are leaving the area due to the upsurge of crime in the area.

I assume the victims thought that they could get to 95 by traveling towards the dead end of Silver Spring Rd. but when they realized they couldn't they knocked on the door of a police officer that had his cruiser parked in his driveway looking for help. The vehicle has been traced to Edgewood so they were unfamiliar with the neighborhood.
