Local Police Investigating Stabbing Involving FSU and AC Students
Local police are investigating a stabbing that involved a Frostburg State University student and an Allegany College student around 2:42 a.m. in the area of 2 Bobcat Court on October 11, 2015.
Because the incident is still under investigation, the names of the individuals cannot be released yet. However, a Cumberland Times-News report identifies the FSU student as Malik Green. The report says the other man is Brandon Phillips. It is not clear whether either man committed a stabbing. Online court records do not list any criminal charges against Green or Phillips on the date of the stabbing or any date after.
The stabbing was the result of growing tensions between FSU and AC students, the Cumberland Times-News reported, citing witness accounts.
Officers from the Frostburg City Police Department, the Frostburg State University Police Department, and the Allegany County Sheriff Department responded to the stabbing report, along with investigators from the Allegany County Combined Criminal Investigative Unit.
A press release from the Frostburg City Police Department says, “When officers arrived on scene they immediately located one male with a stab wound to the chest. While officers were securing the scene another male came forward who had also been stabbed. While interviewing witnesses, it is believed that both were stabbed during an altercation between Frostburg State University and Allegany College of Maryland students.”
The males were transported by Frostburg Area Ambulance and LaVale Ambulance to the Western Maryland Regional Medical Center, according to the press release.
The property where the stabbing occurred, 2 Bobcat Court, is a student residence building currently owned by Gaster Donald Frank of Swanton, Maryland.
