5 stabbed at Rockville Sportsplex

By The Associated Press

Montgomery County police say they are investigating the stabbing of five men at the Rockville Sportsplex, according to WTOP.

Police say officers were called to the center about 1 a.m. Sunday. An officer arriving at the scene stopped a vehicle trying to leave the complex parking lot and found five men inside who were treated for stab wounds. Four others nearby were also detained.

Police say the five were taken to area hospitals for non-life threatening injuries, but refused to give their names and were uncooperative.

Where are the calls to either ban knifes or have background checks on people who want to buy knifes?

Read between the lines. This was a knife fight between a bunch of illegal immigrants.

BTW, will we now see a call for background checks for buying knives?

Posted by: dfb69 | January 17, 2011 7:32 AM | Report abuse

Forget the background checks. Knives no longer have any use in the urban environment so they should be banned. Companies that make knives should be held accountable for provided weapons to certain people.

Sounds like Maryland needs to start a midnight basketball league to keep these young adults away from the evils of midnight soccer.

Oh, and serious knife control legislation is a must. Did you know that at cooking shows, no one undergoes background checks? The cooking show loophole must be closed!

Look on the bright side. There were 5 confirmed stabbings, 4 other injuries and no one sustained life threatening injuries. Add one gun to this equation and you've got multiple fatalities. Sell all the knives you want and keep the guns off the street. My concern lies in the ability of the street toughs to refuse giving names to the police and the fact that they were taken to a hospital for treatment. I want to see insurance cards and IDs before treatment is given to anyone and my tax dollars are involved. I'm also for police having the right to request proof of ID and legal status in situations like this when it seems something is afoot.

Really? A knife that while dangerous caused non life threatening injuries compared to a gun which would have killed. You gun nuts can't be that slow.

Police have charged with two counts each of attempted first-degree murder, among other offenses, Rafael Antonio Marquez, 22, Wifredo Castro Marquez, 23, and Wilber Noel Marquez, 26, all of the 4100 block of Dahill Road, and Ricardo Pecher-Saloj, 18, of Piney Branch Road.

Must have been a spring loaded assault knife, able to randomly spread its stabbing multiple times in a second.

It looks like some MS-13 from Langley Park decided to come over to Rockville and cause trouble with some Latin Kings from Aspen Hill.

Because of the use of weapons in a crime of violence, these guys will actually be cross-references to DHS/ICE as part of Secure Communities, whether or "Ike" Leggett wants to let them back out on the streets because MoCo doesn't enforce Federal immigration laws.

I think you need to review your history. Van Standifer (he was a friend of mine) started the Midnight Basketball League in Maryland--Glen Arden to be specific--nearly 25 years ago. PG County still has the original and still-active chapter running. Montgomery County does not have an active chapter. Part of the problem with many areas is that they had a chapter running in the 80's and 90's but then lost coordinators and organizers and the chapter collapsed. It's a shame really. It's a phenomenal program and I'm glad to have supported it for many years.

Damn shame the county continues to roll out the red carpet to ignorant and violent people and running off long time residents and businesses.

Ah yes...it's to be expected that there will be some bigotry against PG county here. Do a little research. You'll find that the perps are residents of MoCo and the crime happened in MoCo. PG didn't have anything to do with this one. Don't blame us for your problems. Just continue to stick your head in that hole in the ground and ignore the fact that Silver Spring and Wheaton are the metro area home to gang warfare.

DadWannaBe,

I'm not sure hardman was intentionally dissing PGC. I do agree with you that Silver Spring, Wheaton, Gaithersburg, Germantown, etc. have a HUGE gang problem but it's the MoCo Council and County Executive who are burying their heads in the sand and continue to promote policies which attract more of these bottom feeders, not hardman.

Ive never seen such ignorance on here, it was almost humorous!!!!

Fact of the matter is, its not Obama, our govt has allowed illegal's to come here way longer then Obama has been in office. Our govt clearly has their own reasons for doing this.

Until then, MD, DC, VA and every other city is being bombarded with illegals. Our own policy cant even arrest them without seeing them on the street the next day, they even said they have no power.

AspenHood, Ghetto Hill, Rockvillians, you call it what you want, we are all turning into the ghetto. Its not Obama, Its not Palin, its our govt for the past 20 years!!!!!!

Whats wrong, you dont like shopping carts on your street? Whats the big problem? LOL.

You have to take a look at the policies of the sportsplex. They don't have rosters so anyone can show up to play. There is no real discipline process to keep players who habitually break serious rules from playing. I've red carded players only to have them show up the very next game. You'll see more of these types of incidents until the sportsplex does something about it.

If you were watchingt he news... they showed footage adn so happens that a latino was in the picture... they do have indoor soccer there as well as Football, Basketball etc... it is in an industrial area that also has a Spanish club in the small strip mall up on the corner.... Not for fact but the poster that said a fight between illegals is a probably spot on guess. That place gets out of hand with their adult leagues.... During Football and basketball, there are "supposedly" problems a lot. It's been years since I have played there and our teams stopped for lack of control of teams and the leagues (too many issues). I guess, things have not changed.

There's a very simple solution to the gang problem. HBO needs to host a PPV gladiator event between every gang. The criminals would kill eachother off and not harm any innocent bystanders in the process. Not to mention, HBO would make a quick buck. Most gangs would willingly participate by wanting to show off their "street cred". It really is a fool proof plan.
