A man was arrested and charged with attempted murder after a double stabbing in Rockville Thursday night, according to Rockville police.
Two people with stab wounds and cuts were taken to local hospitals with injuries that were not life threatening, according to a press release.
Rockville police responded to the 400 block of North Horners Lane for the report of an assault and stabbing at about 10:15 p.m., according to police. An officer found two people with stab wounds or cuts and a third person with “lesser injuries.”
The third person—identified as Dakota Shaynne Jones, 29, of the 300 block of Howard Avenue in Rockville—retreated into a house and said he had a gun, according to police.
When the Montgomery County Police Emergency Response Team responded, Jones left the house and was taken into custody, according to Rockville police.
Police arrested Jones and charged him with second-degree attempted murder, first-degree assault and reckless endangerment, police wrote.
