Two stabbed during Calvert restaurant 'melee'
Two men were stabbed and two others were assaulted during an early morning fight in Solomons.
"It was a melee," said Lt. Steve Jones, a Calvert County Sheriff's Office spokesman, who said there was a large crowd, but did not have an accurate number.
Shortly before 1 a.m. Friday, police responded to the fight in the parking area in front of Catamarans Restaurant, near the boardwalk. They found two assault victims and made one arrest.
Later that morning, members of the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office alerted Calvert County Sheriff’s Office that there were two stabbing victims from Catamarans at St. Mary’s Hospital.
“We have two victims on the scene and we found out that a friend transported the stabbing victims to St. Mary’s unbeknownst to us,” Jones said.
Steveland Stewart, 24, was stabbed in the upper right chest area and Andre Brothers, 21, was stabbed in the lower back. Both victims are St. Mary’s County residents, Jones said.
Stewart is in critical condition at the trauma unit in Prince George’s Hospital Center. Brothers is in stable condition at St. Mary’s Hospital, Jones said.
Police are looking for one suspect in the stabbing.
In a second incident that took place around the same time, Scott Ferguson, a bouncer at Catamarans, was hit in the head with a beer bottle. Ferguson is in critical condition at the trauma unit in Prince George’s Hospital Center. A second male victim of that attack did not seek treatment.
John Dickens, 20, of Lexington Park, was arrested on the scene for disorderly conduct, Jones said.
Police said they did not know what started the fight. “We are in the beginning stages of developing a suspect and motive for this,” Jones said.
