s Detectives have charged Brian Keith McIntyre, 23, with first degree assault and carrying a dangerous weapon for the March 3 assault on a Westminster man during a private party at a Taneytown home.
Police said they were called to Carroll Hospital Center on March 3 at approximately 4:30 a.m. for a patient suffering from a stab wound to his lower back. According to police, the victim, a 26-year-old Westminster man, had gotten stabbed while removing unwelcome visitors from a party in a home on Bull Frog Road outside of Taneytown.
Police said the victim was transported by a friend to and later relocated to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center. The injury was not life threatening and he was released following treatment.
