Frederick police have charged two men with assault in the stabbing of a third man along South Jefferson Street Sunday night, and are seeking the public’s help in locating the suspects.
Rickey Jamal Wooten, 27, and Jajuan Michael Anderson, 19, both of Frederick, have been charged through a district court commissioner with first- and second-degree assault, conspiracy to commit first-degree assault and reckless endangerment.
Officers were called to South Jefferson Street and Columbus Avenue at 11:39 p.m. for a disturbance, and found an adult man with a stab wound to his back, according to a Frederick Police Department release.
The man was flown to a trauma center but is expected to survive.
Police have not arrested either man at this time, and are trying to locate them, said Lt. Kirk Henneberry of the Frederick Police Department.
Investigators believe the two men and the victim knew each other and had some sort of altercation ahead of the stabbing, he said.
