Police charged a Frederick man with assault after a 78-year-old man was found unconscious Wednesday morning.

Frederick officers responded to the 500 block of Logan Street around 5:15 a.m. Wednesday where they found the unconscious man and determined he had sustained serious injuries from an attack, according to a news release.

Edy Daniel Marroquin-Soma, 21, was later charged with first- and second-degree assault after an investigation by Frederick Police. He is being held at Frederick County Adult Detention Center without bail, the release stated.

Marroquin-Soma and the 78-year-old victim live on the same block, according to the release. The victim was in critical but stable condition as of Wednesday evening, according to the release. After first responders provided aid at the scene, he was transported by helicopter to a trauma center.

I'm just learning the dirtbag who did this has done it twice before. The man he attacked this time is one of the best people, on this earth that I know, and certainly didn't deserve this. Had that young man wanted something, My Friend would have given it to him, or seen that he got it. My Friend has helped so many people, that most people don't even know about, because he is a true giver. He gives from his heart, and doesn't talk about it. I'm praying so hard for him to pull through. I am devastated by this. I'm praying for his family as well.

To close to home for me. Animals like this need to be caged forever or deported.

Too bad the 78 year old wasn't carrying.

You're right. If justice had already been served this guy wouldn't have been out to try to murder my friend.

No.you wouldn't, you would be arrested and locked up.

Counting the two times last year, this is the third time this low life has been charged with assault. Throw him into the Big House and leave him there to learn what real assault is.

DickD

You looked on Maryland Judiciary Web site?

C.D.Reid

Correct, Dick.

Maybe they should put him in a cell with Mr. Dover. [ninja]

C.D.Reid

Ben?

bosco

Yep. [lol][ninja]

Our "justice" system at it's very best. And, I agree. The Big House will teach him he's not so tough, just a little peon in the chain.

bosco

Maybe he saw the example of crime and punishment from the beatdown at the Frederick Fair where the two perps got a walk and figured he could get away with it too.

Yeah, Solt sent a real good message to all the local punks with her decision in that case.

Whatsup

*cumbag, plain and simple

bosco

Is there a vacant seat on the ICE bus headed south?

What makes you think that he is undocumented?

bosco

Thank goodness our sheriff will make that determination.[alien]
