OCEAN CITY, Md. -- Ocean City police have a man in custody and are looking for another after two men were stabbed during a street fight.
The incident happened at about 3:30 a.m. Sunday at 16th Street and Baltimore Avenue.
Officers said that Justin Pfeiler, 21, of Baltimore, and David Grimes, 23, of Millersville, were walking in the street, blocking traffic and argued with two 18-year-old men from Lancaster, Pa., in a car.
Investigators said that Pfeiler pulled the driver, Edward Cockrell, out of the car and that the passenger, Omil Milfort, stabbed Grimes twice in the chest.
Then Milfort swung at Pfeiler, striking him twice in the leg and once in the back, officers said.
Cockrell and Milfort fled the scene but Cockrell was arrested later by police and charged with first-degree assault.
Officers said they found the pair’s vehicle, a 1994 Oldsmobile sedan, registered to Cockrell’s mother, 30 minutes after the fight at the intersection of Robin Drive and Judlee Avenue.
As of this report, Milfort was still at large.
Pfeiler was treated at Atlantic General Hospital in Berlin and released. Grimes was flown to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury, where he is listed in stable condition.
Cockrell is currently an appearance before a District Court Commissioner.
The specific charges against Milfort have not yet been determined.
Anyone with information regarding this incident or the whereabouts of Milfort is asked to contact the Ocean City Police Department at 410-723-6600.
