December 24, 2012

A man was taken Monday afternoon to Meritus Medical Center with a stab wound to the neck, according to a 911 supervisor with Washington County Emergency Services.

The injuries to the unidentified man were not life-threatening, Hagerstown police Sgt. Chris Barnett said shortly before 1 p.m. Monday. Police had not identified a suspect in the incident, which was still under investigation, he said.

The victim was released from the hospital, police said Tuesday.

When officers arrived Monday, the victim told them he had been attacked by a person who pulled out a box cutter and cut his neck, Barnett said in a press release.

A caller to 911 reported the incident as being in what is called by some as “Drunk Alley” at 12:17 p.m. Monday, the 911 supervisor said. The alley is off Church Street between Jonathan and North Potomac streets, the 911 supervisor said.

Barnett later identified the alley as Suter Avenue.
