An Arbutus man was indicted on several charges after he reportedly stabbing a "longtime friend” outside of an Ellicott City bowling alley last month, according to court documents.
On May 21, Andre Lamont Mitchell, 29, of the 5600 block of Selford Rd., was at the bowling alley on the 8400 block of Baltimore National Pike with 31-year-old Troy Eldrige Hardy when, according to a statement given to police, the two got into an argument.
Hardy, who described Mitchell as a "longtime friend," said that the two then went outside and the argument turned physical when Mitchell pulled out a knife, police said.
According to the charging document, Hardy said he tried to get away from Mitchell “in fear for his life,” but was stabbed several times. He was stabbed twice in the thigh and once in the chest, according police.
Hardy told police that after the stabbing, Mitchell went back into the bowling alley “to have a good time.” Hardy was taken to University of Maryland Shock Trauma.
Mitchell was indicted on June 20 on charges of first- and second-degree assault and possession of a dangerous weapon.
