UPDATE (April 9, 2019 1:03 p.m.):

Baltimore County Police have identified the two 15-year-old suspects that assaulted and seriously injured two men and a juvenile with a knife Sunday night in Windsor Mill.

Jermaine Isaiah Foster (15) and Jordan Tyrone Foster (15), both of the 2500 block of Elesmere Drive, 21244 have been charged as adults with two counts each of Attempted First Degree Homicide and three counts each of First Degree Assault. Both are being held by Baltimore County Corrections on denied bail status pending bail review hearings.

Original Release (April 8, 2019 4 p.m.):

Two teenage boys are being charged as adults following a triple stabbing in Windsor Mill last night.

The boys, both 15 years old, were arrested shortly after midnight following a physical fight with three neighbors in which at least one of the suspects pulled out knife and stabbed the victims. Police were called to the 2500 block of Elesmere Drive, 21244 around 7:45 p.m. for the fight, which left an 18-year-old man suffering from life-threatening wounds to the upper body, a 40-year-old man suffering non-life threatening wounds to the upper body, and a 14-year-old boy suffering a cut to the upper body when he tried to break up the fight.

The fight began when the victims confronted the suspects and were attacked by the two teenage boys. The 14-year-old boy had sought help from the victims after a verbal exchange with the two teenage boys at a nearby playground.

Both of the adult victims were transported to an area hospital following the fight. The juvenile was treated for his cuts at the scene.

The two teens fled the scene prior to arrival of police but were identified as the suspects and arrested a few hours later. They now face being charged as adults in the assault. Those charges are presently pending.
