Last Thursday, Ocean City Police responded to the 7-Eleven store on Coastal Highway at 26th Street for a reported fight. When officers arrived, the fight had already broken up and those involved had left the area. About 30 minutes later, OCPD officers received a complaint about a stabbing and met with a victim at a residence on 146th Street.
While talking with the victim, officers learned the victim had been involved in the previously reported fight at the 7-Eleven on 26th Street, during which the victim was assaulted with a knife and sustained two stab wounds. The victim was treated by Ocean City paramedics and was transported to PRMC. The victim is expected to make a full recovery.
During the investigation, OCPD detectives identified the suspect as Brandon Maurice Hudson, 24, of Snow Hill. Investigators obtained information about Hudson’s possible whereabouts and he was located at around 4 p.m. on Friday in Berlin. Hudson was arrested and charged with first- and second-degree assault and possession of a deadly weapon with intent to injure. He was taken before an Ocean City District Court Commissioner and was ordered to be held on a $100,000 bond. He was then transferred to the Worcester County Jail.
