Richard Paul Michael Arrested

On 10-2-09, at approximately 0027 hours, A/Sgt. Hayer and OFC Holler were in the area of E. 5th St. and N. East St. when Frederick City DPW workers reported an assault in progress involving a knife in the 100 block of E. 5th St. When the officers arrived on scene, they noticed the male victim lying on the ground, and the suspect, Richard Paul Michael, sitting next to the victim. Both men were covered in blood.

The victim stated that Michael stabbed him several times. Multiple witnesses later confirmed the same information. The victim was transported to the trauma unit at Washington County Hospital and reported to be in serious but stable condition. Michael was transported to FMH for chest pains and minor injuries from the assault. Michael was released a short time later and transported to FCADC for processing.

Although a motive is not known at this time, the victim and Michael knew each other. Anyone that was not interviewed on scene that may have information about the incident is asked to contact A/Sgt. Hayer at 301-600-1265 or the FPD tip line at 240-600-tips.
