COLESVILLE, Md. (CBSDC) - Police have identified a man suspected in the stabbing that occurred at a Post Office Wednesday in Maryland.
Detectives are continuing to investigate a stabbing that occurred at the U.S. Post Office located on the 13200 block of New Hampshire Avenue in Colesville but have identified as suspect in the case. The man has been identified of 67-year-old Ray Alfred Young of the 600 block of Concerto Lane in Silver Spring.
Young was arrested following the stabbing incident and was charged with attempted 2nd-degree murder, 1st-degree assault, 2nd-degree assault, and concealing a dangerous weapon.
Police believe the incident occurred following a confrontation between the suspect and a 58-year old man shortly after 2:15 p.m. Wednesday.
The victim got up to the postal window, but was told he would need to fill out more paperwork before completing his transaction. He was allowed to finish filling out the forms off to the side of the window and then come straight back to the counter.
Ray Alfred Young, who was waiting in line apparently thought the man was cutting in line when he returned the window. He exited the post office and waited in the vestibule for the victim to leave. Young then allegedly stabbed the victim, at which point two female postal employees intervened.
Young is currently being held on bond and will have a bond review hearing Friday at 1:00 p.m. at the Rockville District Court.
Police are asking anyone that may have witnessed the incident or anyone with information about it to contact the 3rd District Investigative Section at (301) 565-5835.
