A 30-year-old Crofton man is in custody for allegedly stabbing another man Saturday in Nanjemoy while they were driving on Port Tobacco Road.
According to charging documents, police responded to a reported stabbing in the 4200 block of Port Tobacco Road June 29, where they found a man in a Mazda sedan bleeding from wounds to the neck and arm, along with the man later identified as the accused, Brian Eric Allen Jr.
According to a third man, who had called police to report the incident, he was in the car with Allen and the victim, who had picked him up shortly before the incident.
When they were in the area of the Nanjemoy community center, Allen, who was seated on the driver’s side in the rear, allegedly produced a knife and began stabbing the victim, who was driving.
The victim slammed on the brakes, according to the report, and Allen allegedly continued to “repeatedly stab [the victim].”
The witness told police he ran from the car when they stopped at a stop sign. The victim’s injuries were treated at the scene and not considered life-threatening, the report says.
Allen is charged with reckless endangerment, attempted first-degree murder and first- and second-degree assault. He was originally ordered held without bond, but was being held on $5,000 as of Monday. A preliminary district court hearing is set for July 26.
