Alexandria Patrice Spencer, 29, also of 21405 Ruble Road, Boonsboro, was charged with one count of first-degree assault, the release said.

The incident was reported at 8:59 p.m. Thursday. Police said two females were involved in a physical altercation, when a male intervened and began to stab multiple victims.

The male and one of the females involved in the altercation fled the scene, police said.

Hagerstown Police Department spokesman Sgt. Chad Woodring said Thursday night that when he arrived at the scene, all of the victims were up and walking around.

One victim, a male, appeared to have wounds around his neck. Woodring said the other victims were believed to be females.
