A man has been arrested on charges of malicious wounding during an argument at a Stephens City residence on Friday.

Luis Macedonio-Juarez, 68, was arrested Friday evening and transported to the Northwestern Adult Detention Center, where he was held without bond.

Frederick County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Aleck Beeman stated in a news release that deputies responded to a reported stabbing at a home in the 100 block of Foster Hollow Road in Stephens City around 10:30 p.m. Friday.

“Deputies located Luke Flint, 32, at the address. Mr. Flint stated that he and his step-father were in an argument about his mother.
