FREDERICK POLICE DEPARTMENT - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

September 23, 2020
 

FREDERICK, MD – At 11:39 p.m. on September 20, 2020, officers of the Frederick Police Department (FPD) responded to South Jefferson Street and Columbus Avenue for a disturbance call. Officers located an adult, male victim with a stab wound to his back. FPD officers and Emergency Medical Technicians from the Frederick County Division of Fire and Rescue Services provided treatment at the scene. The Maryland State Police Aviation Division transported the victim by helicopter to a trauma center for further treatment.  The victim is expected to survive.

Patrol officers and detectives conducted an investigation. Based on information gathered from several sources, Detective Wolfe applied for criminal charges against Rickey Jamal Wooten, 27, of Frederick, and Jajuan Michael Anderson, 19, of Frederick. A District Court Commissioner issued arrest warrants for both suspects, charging them with the following crimes:

  • Assault-First Degree;
  • Assault-Second Degree;
  • Conspiracy-Assault-First Degree;
  • Reckless Endangerment. 

Police have not apprehended either of the suspects at this time. We believe the victim and suspects know each other, and this was not a random assault. Attached are photographs of the suspects from previous arrests. Their appearances may have changed. 

We ask anyone with additional information about this incident or the whereabouts of the two wanted persons to contact the Frederick Police Department 24/7 at 301-600-2102. Det. Wolfe is the primary investigator; she can be reached at 240-549-4450. Those who wish to remain anonymous can contact the department’s tip lines: 

The tip lines and e-mail are not for urgent matters. To reach a dispatcher immediately, please use our non-emergency number: 301-600-2102. Use 9-1-1 for crimes in progress and other emergencies. 

The City of Frederick is a participating jurisdiction with Metro Crime Stoppers (MCS) of Maryland.  Submitting a tip through MCS is anonymous, and if the information leads to an arrest or criminal charges, the tipster receives a cash reward.  See http://metrocrimestoppers.org/submit-a-tip/ for more information.
