ANNAPOLIS, MD - A man was stabbed multiple times and hospitalized Saturday in Annapolis, police said. 

Officers said they arrested the stabbing suspect, identified as 34-year-old Antonio Rodell Surgeon of Annapolis, after he turned himself in.

Authorities said they were called to the 900 block of President Street in Eastport at 11:28 p.m.

Police said they found the victim, who was flown to shock trauma in critical but stable condition.

Officers said Surgeon later called authorities and reported that the victim had assaulted him, so Surgeon stated that he stabbed the man in return. 

A police spokesperson told Patch that there is currently no evidence supporting Surgeon's claim that he stabbed the victim in an act of self-defense.

Surgeon told police he still had the knife and was at the Eastport Community Center, a press release said. 

Officers said they arrested Surgeon and charged him with:

  • First-degree assault (Felony)
  • Second-degree assault (Misdemeanor)
  • Reckless endangerment (Misdemeanor)

Authorities said Surgeon is being held at the Jennifer Road Detention Center without bond.

Court records show that Surgeon had a bail review Monday at 1:30 p.m., where a judge decided if he should be held without bond until his trial. The case file does not yet show the result of that hearing, however.
