Anne Arundel County police arrested a Crownsville man Monday after a fight between two roommates that involved a hunting knife.
Shortly before 6 p.m., police responded to a residence on the 1500 block of Crownsville Road for a reported fight between two men. Officers separated the men and recovered a knife, believed to have been involved in the incident.
Officers arrested Jeremy Earl Johnson, 38, of Crownsville and charged him with attempted second-degree murder, first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and intent to injure with a dangerous weapon.
Police said an initial investigation suggests Johnson became upset when, instead of giving him a ride home from work, the victim was at their shared residence.
When Johnson arrived at their residence, he assaulted his roommate and threatened to stab or cut him with a hunting knife. When the victim attempted to flee, Johnson threw the knife at him twice, according to police and at least one witness.
The knife missed the victim on both throws, according to police.
The victim sustained a small laceration on his forearm during the incident but refused medical treatment, according to police.
