Two men are in custody, and charges are pending against a juvenile following a stabbing last week in Indian Head.

Stephen Dayshawn Jordan, an 18-year-old Marbury resident, and 19-year-old Deandre Lamont Campbell of Waldorf were allegedly part of a trio who stabbed, beat and kicked a man before dragging him into the woods and leaving him for dead, according to a police report.

While hospitalized, the victim was interviewed by police, at which time he told officers his friend “Black” picked him up April 23. Campbell was later identified as Black.

The pair drove to Linkins Road, according to the report, where a man and a juvenile were waiting. Campbell got out of the car and began talking to the two others, of whom Jordan was one. The victim felt something was amiss and began walking away before Campbell called and asked where he was and said the other man and the juvenile had gone, according to the report.

The victim got back in the car and allegedly saw Jordan and the juvenile suspect both still were there. Campbell then drove farther down Linkins Road before they stopped and got out of the car, according to the report.

Once they were out of the car, Campbell grabbed the victim by the neck and stabbed him, according to the report. The victim tried to run away and was chased down. When he tripped, Campbell, Jordan and the juvenile caught up, and Campbell stabbed him again while the other two beat him, according to the report.

The victim went limp in an attempt to get them to stop and overheard the trio say they thought he was dead, according to the report. They then allegedly took the victim’s shoes, wallet, jacket and a sock.

The attack resulted in facial fractures and stab wounds to the victim’s temple. Jordan confirmed while being interrogated that they had only stopped because they thought the victim was dead, according to the report.

Both men are facing attempted first-degree murder charges, along with armed robbery, theft, assault and weapons charges. Police said charges are pending against the juvenile. Jordan is being held in lieu of $250,000 bail and Campbell in lieu of $500,000 bail.
