Police seek man in hammer attack

Anthony T. Soligny

Update, 5:25 p.m.:

Anthony T. Soligny was stopped and arrested shortly before 3 p.m. Wednesday in Georgia.

Maryland State Police had issued a lookout for Soligny and the vehicle he was thought to be driving. A deputy from the Franklin County sheriff’s office spotted Soligny in his truck headed south on Interstate 85 in Georgia, according to Maryland State Police.

While the deputy was following Soligny, the suspect pulled to the side of the road, called 911 and told dispatchers he was going to surrender, authorities said. He was taken into custody without incident.

Soligny will be held as a fugitive while Maryland State Police investigators initiate extradition proceedings to return him to Maryland, officials said.
