Just before 11 a.m. Monday, Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to a home in the 1900 block of Stillwater Road in Eldersburg to investigate a serious assault, according to a news release.
Deputies said they found a 57-year-old male bleeding from a head wound.
According to officers, an unknown male and female approached the victim's residence and asked to use the phone.
The victim denied the couple access and a few minutes later left his home. As the victim was getting in his car, the two subjects, both armed with unknown weapons, accosted him at his vehicle, demanding that he let them inside his residence, according to an official report.
When he denied them access, both suspects struck the victim on his head. The victim then started to yell for help, at which time the suspects fled on foot.
Police searched the area with the assistance of the Maryland State Police, however neither suspect was located. The victim was transported to Carroll Hospital Center for treatment of injuries, which are not considered life threating.
"There is no confirmation that either subject is armed at this time," Sgt. David Stem said. "As with all crimes of this nature, we caution people not to approach any suspects and to contact the police should they see someone matching the description. It is not believed that the suspects are an immediate threat to anyone in the area."
The suspects are described as a black male, approximately 6 feet tall, mid 20s, wearing a black shirt and black pants; and a black female, approximately 6 feet tall, mid 20s, with black shoulder-length hair and wearing a long yellow dress.
Anyone with information on this incident or who may have witnessed these subjects walking around the Stillwater Road area is asked to contact Detective Fred Timms of the Major Crimes Section at 410-386-5900 or the TIPS Hotline at 1-888-399-TIPP (8477)
