On Sunday, May 17 at approximately 8:30 p.m., the Calvert Control Center received a 911 call from a home in the 7600 block of Solomons Island Road in Owings. The caller advised that someone inside the home had been stabbed during a domestic altercation. DFC P. Aurich arrived on the scene and observed that a 58-year-old woman had been stabbed in the abdomen and arms by her 38-year-old son, later identified as Darrell Lee Adams, of Owings. Det. H. Rich of the Criminal Investigations Bureau arrived and assumed the investigation. The victim was later med-evacuated to Prince George’s County Hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. Three other family members were present during the altercation attempting to assist the victim and keep the suspect from harming her. No one else was injured in the fight; however, the suspect, Adams, also suffered wounds on his hands, which were treated before he was taken to the Calvert County Detention Center. Adams has been charged with four counts of each of the following offenses: first degree assault, second degree assault, reckless endangerment and possessing a dangerous weapon with intent to injure.
