Court briefs

July 30, 2003

A Hagerstown man charged in a July stabbing waived his right to a preliminary hearing in District Court Tuesday.

Court records say Mark Anthony Thompson, 44, of 111 Broadway, Apartment 4, is charged with first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and malicious destruction of property in connection with a July 1 stabbing over a broken window.

Thompson was being held on $50,000 bond at the Washington County Detention Center, according to records.

Police said they were called at 10:37 p.m. to Apartment 2 at 111 Broadway, where they found Frederick Wayne Baldwin, who had been stabbed in the stomach.

Police alleged that Baldwin and Thompson had argued over the broken window.

Baldwin was taken to Washington County Hospital, where he was given stitches.

Probable cause was found during a preliminary hearing Tuesday to send to Circuit Court the case of a city man charged in a robbery and an assault against a woman in downtown Hagerstown in June.


Court records say charges against Donald Marcell Rivers Sr., 38, of 25 1/2 W. Franklin St., second floor, have been forwarded to Washington County Circuit Court. Rivers is charged with robbery and two counts of second-degree assault in the incident.

He is charged with hitting and robbing a 39-year-old woman on June 30 in the 100 block of West Washington Street, according to court records.

Rivers was at the Washington County Detention Center on $125,000 bond, according to records.
