Police Charge Suspected Perry Hall Stabber, Both Victims

Police believe the stabbing on Hilltop Acres on Jan. 3 was drug related.

Police have arrested and charged the suspect and both victims involved in a brutal stabbing incident in Perry Hall. 

According to Baltimore County police, at about 7:40 p.m. on Jan. 3, Brandon Victorian and Donte Smith arrived in the 5000 block of Hilltop Acres Road to meet a third man named Dallus Newson. After a disagreement, Victorian and Smith assaulted and robbed Newson, who then pulled out a knife and stabbed both men, police stated in a release.

Victorian and Smith ran toward Winding Way, where they called 911 and were transported to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center for treatment, police said. 

None of the men involved is a local resident and there is no known connection between the men and the Hilltop Acres neighborhood. As of Friday afternoon, detectives were still investigating the incident, according to Cpl. Cathy Batton, a Baltimore County police spokeswoman.

Police believe the initial meeting on Hilltop Acres was drug related, according to the release.

Such a shame. My wife's grandfather lived there since the 50s. We lived there for 5 years and saw it change. Guy robbed the Supperfresh and hid in a shed on my street. Shot at police and they shot him dead. So we moved to Bel Air and they are having the same issues. We have kids now and luckily my company transferred me to the middle of no where. It is pretty safe, good schools and great Demi's. it is such a shame that Bmore is so unsafe. Go Ravens!
