Hollywood, Maryland – On June 3, 2015, at 10:26 PM, deputies responded to a residence on Rustic Way for a reported stabbing.
The investigation revealed a 35 year old male who resides at the address came home intoxicated. He began to argue with a female victim in the home. The argument turned physical when the male began to strike the female repeatedly then drag her from the bed.
