June 13, 2009

A Hagerstown man was seriously wounded Saturday night when he was stabbed three times in a fight near Elgin Station in Hagerstown's West End, Hagerstown Police Department Sgt. Eric D. Knode said.

The incident began about 6:40 p.m. on the basketball court at Elgin Station when two brothers got into an argument over an iPod, Knode said.

One brother stabbed the other, causing nonlife-threatening wounds on his arm and back, Knode said.

The victim, a 30-year-old man whose name Knode would not release, was taken to Washington County Hospital, he said.

The victim's brother was described as a black man, about 19 years old, 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighing about 160 pounds, with his hair in braids, Knode said. He was wearing khaki shorts and a faded green T-shirt, he said.
