One is charged with attempted 2nd-degree murder.
Charges have been filed against four Frederick residents following a robbery and stabbing in Hagerstown early Monday morning.
The Washington County Sheriff's Office says Tony Anthony Jones, 24, is charged with Attempted Second-Degree Murder, Robbery, Armed Robbery, First-Degree Assault, Second-Degree Assault and Reckless Endangerment. Karl Samuel Trabold, 23, is charged with conspiracy to commit Armed Robbery, Conspiracy to Commit Robbery and Second-Degree Assault. Robert Patrick Herron, 27, is charged with Conspiracy to Commit Armed Robbery, Conspiracy to Commit Robbery and Second-Degree Assault. Kara Ann Day, 23, is charged with Conspiracy to Commit Armed Robbery and Conspiracy to Commit Robbery.
Authorities were dispatched to the Motel Six on Massey Boulevard in Hagerstown around 1:00 AM Monday for a robbery and a stabbing. Sergeant Chris Weaver with the Washington County Sheriff's Office says three females, Brianna Poole, 20, Madeline Beamish, 22, and a 17-year-old juvenile, were inside a motel room. Poole says she invited Day to the room. Later on Trabold and Jones came in.
While there, Jones pulled out a knife, and threatened the females in the room, and demanded money. Beamish was pushed into a bathroom, where a struggle took place and she was stabbed. "She was stabbed multiple times by Mr. Jones in the hands, the legs and the feet," says Sergeant Weaver.
Beamish was taken to Meritus Medical Center.
All four left the area in a silver Jeep Cherokee. The Sheriff's Office put out a broadcast for the vehicle to surrounding police agencies.
State Police in Frederick found the suspect vehicle parked at the Econo-Lodge on Route 85 in Frederick.
The four individuals were taken into custody, and turned over to the Washington County Sheriff's Office. "They were ultimately transported back to Washington County and put in the Washington County Detention Center," he says.
It didn't take too long after the incident for a State Troopers to locate the Silver Jeep Cherokee, says Sergeant Weaver. "I was actually at the hospital interviewing the stabbing victim when I got a call from Trooper Schrout out of Frederick, who had located the vehicle," he says. "So we were still in the preliminary stages of the investigation when the vehicle was located, the suspects were located."
Sergeant Weaver also credits law enforcement in Frederick County not only for locating, but apprehending the suspects. "I thank the Maryland State Police and the Frederick County Sheriff's Department for their assistance in this case. Without them, we wouldn't have found the vehicle because it wasn't in our jurisdiction. So it worked out pretty good," he says.
