BALTIMORE — A man has been arrested after a disagreement led him to assaulting two people with an axe.

On January 9 at about 11:50 p.m., officers responded to an assault at a home in the 1300 block of Huntover Drive in Odenton.

According to police, a 33-year-old man assaulted a 51-year-old man and a 50-year-old woman with an axe. Police say the victims were able to gain control of the axe and hit the suspect with it.

All three individuals were taken to an area hospital for serious but non-life threatening injuries.

The investigation revealed the assault was started by a disagreement between the suspect and victims.

Charges have been applied against the suspect which have not yet been served. The suspect will be identified after he is released from the hospital and formally charged.
