A Rockville man was arrested in connection with a stabbing on Tuesday in Twinbrook, the City of Rockville announced in a news release.

Bryan Matthew Wilt, 31, of no fixed address, was arrested and charged with first-degree assault, possession of a deadly weapon and reckless endangerment, according to police.

Rockville City Police responded to a report of a stabbing in the 5900 block of Lemay Road at 8:56 p.m. on Tuesday, according to the release. Officers saw a person, later identified as Wilt, running on Lemay Road with a knife in hand, the release said. Wilt was taken into custody without incident.

A victim was found in a nearby residence and taken to in Bethesda for treatment of multiple stab wounds. The victims’ condition is not known at this time.

“The stabbing stemmed from an earlier altercation that took place between a member of Wilt's family and a known associate of the victim,” the release said. “As the victim was attempting to diffuse the situation he was attacked and stabbed.”

Wilt is being held without bond in the county jail, according to online court records. He is scheduled to appear in Montgomery County District Court in Rockville for a preliminary hearing on June 1.
