GAMBRILLS, Md. - Police say they have charged a man who chased down his attacker after being stabbed in a road rage incident earlier this week.
Jeffrey Neil Furlough, 44, is charged with first- and second-degree assault.
It all began just before 4 p.m. February 20 in the area of Route 3 North and Reidel Road.
Police say the fight was between Furlough and the 23-year-old passenger of a PT Cruiser, later identified at Ross Brandon Sudbrook of Baltimore.
Witnesses told police Furlough and a passenger in his 2002 Ford Explorer got out of their car to change seats. When Sudbrook saw this he began yelling at them and an argument between the two men began.
The two cars continued on and then met up once again at the intersection of Route 3 and Reidel Road. Police say Furlough got out of his car and confronted Sudbrook. Police say Sudbrook stabbed Furlough in his upper body and then took off on nortbound Route 3.
Furlough got back into his car and chased the PT Cruiser, ultimately forcing it off the road in a collision on Route 3 and Churchview Road. The two men began fighting again until the police showed up.
Both men were taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center for treatment. The 22-year-old female driver of the PT Cruiser and the passenger of the Explorer were also taken to local hospitals with minor injuries.
Police say it does not appear the two men knew each other.
Sudbrook was charged that day with assault, reckless endangerment, and carrying a dangerous weapon with the intent to injure.
After talking to witnesses, police, along with the State's Attorney's Office, decided to charge Furlough with assault. Furlough later turned himself in at the Northern District station.
