SNOW HILL — A Selbyville man has been sentenced to five years in jail with all but two suspected for his role in the severe beating of another man in Ocean City last June.
Last June 24, Ocean City Police Department (OCPD) officers responded to a reported assault that had already occurred near a resort nightclub. When OCPD officers arrived, they found the male victim lying face down, bleeding from the mouth and unresponsive.
OCPD officers interviewed witnesses and reviewed surveillance video to identify the suspect as Myron Drummond, 29. Witness statements and surveillance video determined Drummond was the suspect who had repeatedly punched the victim in the face and head. The victim was transported to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Unit in Baltimore after it was determined he had suffered a concussion and a dislocated jaw.
Drummond was located in the area and was found with fresh blood smears on his T-shirt. Last week, a Worcester County Circuit Court judge found Drummond guilty of second-degree assault and sentenced him to five years, all but two of which were suspended.
He was also placed on supervised probation upon his release and was ordered to pay full restitution to the victim to cover medical bills suffered in the attack. Worcester County State’s Attorney Kris Heiser commended the OCPD and Officer Berry for the investigation, and thanked Assistant State’s Attorney Paul Haskell for his prosecution of the case.
