Walkersville, Md. (DG) – Maryland State Police arrested a man early Thursday morning for stabbing his estranged wife in Walkersville.

Ron Snyder, Maryland State Police Spokesman, said 36-year-old Jeremiah Snyder has been charged with second-degree attempted murder and first-degree assault. He is being held at the Frederick County Adult Detention Center.

Shortly after 12:30 a.m. on Thursday, troopers from the Frederick Barrack responded to a home on Fulton Avenue for a domestic assault in progress.

Once on scene, police learned Jeremiah Synder stabbed his estranged wife in the head and arm. He fled the scene before troopers arrived.

The 37-year-old victim was taken to Frederick Memorial Hospital for treatment of her injuries.

Police recovered a knife at the home they believe was used in the stabbing.

Jeremiah Snyder was later located at a home on Maple Avenue in Walkersville and was placed under arrest.

Investigators say Jeremiah Snyder and the victim are separated and living at different locations. He forced his way into the house and confronted the victim. A verbal argument followed and that led to the stabbing.
