HAGERSTOWN — Police were looking Wednesday for two men in connection with a home invasion that occured Tuesday night at an apartment on Frederick Street.

The intruders were described as black males in their 20s, according to the Hagerstown Police Department.

One of the men was about 6-feet, 2-inches tall and weighed roughly 250 pounds, police said. He was wearing a black-hooded jacket and had a white T-shirt tied around his face.

The other man was about 5-feet, 9-inches tall and weighed about 180 pounds. He was wearing a white varsity-style jacket with a Superman logo on it, according to police.

The home invasion led to two other men being taken to Meritus Medical Center with multiple non life-threatening stab wounds, police said.


Police said the stabbing occurred around 7 p.m. at 285 Frederick St., where several businesses are located.

Acting Hagerstown Police Chief Mark Holtzman said Tuesday night that two men, one armed with a knife and the other carrying a handgun, forced their way into the apartment.

Officers said that when they arrived, they found two men outside with a number of stab wounds to their upper torsos.

Police said the motive for the assault is believed to be drug related.

Two women and two children were also in the apartment, Holtzman said. One of the women and the children escaped from the apartment through a window. He said the other woman was at the scene when police arrived.

Holtzman said investigators were interviewing witnesses.

Anyone with information may call Hagerstown police at 301-790-3700.
