A Hagerstown man was charged Saturday with attempted second-degree murder and three other counts after an alleged assault Friday night on North Locust Street in the city, the Hagerstown Police Department said.
Clayton Lane Pendergrast, 28, of West North Avenue also was charged with first- and second-degree assault and reckless endangerment, according to a police department news release.
Officers responded Friday at 8:33 p.m. to 216 N. Locust St., where they found a 32-year-old Hagerstown man with injuries from an assault, the release said.
The victim was taken to Meritus Medical Center with life-threatening injuries. He later was flown to R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma in Baltimore, where he remains in critical condition, the release said.
Pendergrast was identified as a suspect during the investigation, and police said they found and arrested him Saturday shortly after midnight in the 300 block of Jonathan Street in downtown Hagerstown, police said.
He was being held without bond Saturday at the Washington County Detention Center.
