A man was stabbed in the back during an argument with a woman at a home near Frederick Manor Thursday night, Hagers-town City Police and rescue workers said.

Police were called to 213-215 Rowland Avenue around 9:15 p.m. for a report of a stabbing. Police would not say how or why the man was stabbed Thursday evening.

Sgt. Fred Wolford said police had not finished their investigation and were unsure if charges would be filed or if the stabbing was in self-defense.

Police handcuffed a woman and made her sit on the curb across from the Rowland Avenue home around 9:45 p.m.

The woman cried as Community Rescue Service medics brought the victim out on a stretcher.

As the victim was being loaded onto the ambulance, an officer brought the woman over to the victim, then took her away from the scene in a police cruiser.

Police were not sure which hospital the victim was taken to.

Neighbors across the street from the home said they did not see what happened, but commonly hear noise and commotion coming from homes in the area.
