BALTIMORE - Baltimore police arrested an Odenton man in connection with a fatal stabbing in Fells Point early Thursday morning, charging documents show.
Raymond Mundy, 43, of the 1300 block of Huntover Drive, was charged with murder in the first degree, assault in the first and second degree and possession of a dangerous weapon with intent to injure. Mundy faces a maximum of life in prison if convicted.
A Baltimore police officer noticed a Ford Mustang pulled off to the side of the Boston Street in Canton at about 2:28 a.m. Thursday.
Two men were standing over their friend, 31-year-old Osher Perez who minutes earlier was involved in an altercation with a man matching Mundy’s description.
The friends told police that Mundy walked up to their car at the intersection of Aliceanna and South Washington Street in Fells Point. They said Perez rolled down the window to speak with Mundy as he approached the Mustang.
Mundy “yelled” expletives at Perez, who was driving, and at his passengers, charging documents show. Mundy then reached into the car and started punching Perez about the left side of his body and his face, witnesses recall.
“As the suspect did this, Mr. Perez drove off and away from the suspect who was now chasing the vehicle on foot,” the charging documents read. “As Mr. Perez was driving, he realized that he was bleeding and began to believe that he was not punched but was stabbed with an edged weapon.”
Perez pulled over and was transported to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. Perez died from his injuries at 3:53 a.m.
