A man was taken to a hospital Friday night for injuries sustained in a fight that began over a parking space.
At 6:30 p.m. Jan. 31, Charles County sheriff’s officers were called to the 1500 block of Bryan Court in Waldorf after someone reported a stabbing.
Officers learned that the victim, 56, and Kenny Earl Morris, 53, both of Waldorf were known to each other, as their girlfriends are sisters. The two men were arguing over a parking space. Parking spaces in the neighborhood are not assigned, according to court charging documents.
Officers reported the victim parked in a spot that Morris believed was reserved for him.
After the argument, the two went their separate ways, but later the victim went to Morris’ residence, and the two continued the argument.
The altercation became physical, and Morris stabbed the victim multiple times in the upper body, according to charging documents.
The court documents state that when the victim went back to his residence he realized the blade of the knife was stuck in his neck, and the handle was missing. At that time, he removed the blade and called his girlfriend, who called 911.
Officers went to Morris’ home where they observed blood on the front step and in the home. Morris acknowledged the victim had been at his house and a fight took place but denied stabbing the victim.
The victim was transported to a hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, police reported.
Morris was arrested and charged with first-degree attempted murder, first- and second-degree assault and having a dangerous weapon to cause injury.
