OCEAN CITY — Ocean City Police this week are still seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the suspects in a violent assault in the north end of the resort last Saturday that left a Baltimore County man in grave condition.
Around 2:30 a.m. last Saturday, Ocean City Police and EMS responded to the area of 136th Street and Coastal Highway for a reported assault. Ocean City EMS transported the victim, a 31-year-old Baltimore County man, to PRMC in Salisbury where he remains in serious condition with life-threatening injuries.
The investigation is ongoing and no suspects have yet been identified. In the preliminary investigation, OCPD detectives learned the victim and a friend were involved in a physical altercation with four white males before police and EMS arrived on the scene. One suspect is described as a white male, approximately 5’8” to 5’10” with short, light-colored hair and visible tattoos on both arms and neck. That suspect was wearing a white T-shirt at the time of the attack.
A second suspect is described as a white male with a darker complexion, about 6’ tall and weighing around 200 pounds with curly hair parted to the side and wearing glasses. A description of two other suspects involved in the assault is not available.
