A University of Maryland student has been charged with first and second degree murder, along with first-degree assault. Police say that the attack was unprovoked and random. A student visiting from Bowie State University was fatally stabbed. The stabbing occurred around 3 a.m. Saturday morning.
Sean Christopher Urbanski, 22, has been arrested and charged with murder. The Bowie State University student was walking with two friends near a bus stop at the College Park campus when he was fatally attacked. They were merely waiting for an Uber in front of Montgomery Hall on Regents Drive when the fatal incident occurred. The victim was stabbed in the chest with a folding knife.
After witnesses positively identified Sean, he was arrested for Saturday morning’s murder on Regents Drive. When officers took Sean into custody, he wasn’t speaking rationally, according to the police. He has been charged with first and second degree murder, as well as first-degree assault.
The victim’s name has not been released to the public, at the request of the victim’s family. The deceased is black, but police don’t believe that race played a part in the stabbing.
The suspect is from Severna Park, Maryland. No lawyer has been listed for Mr. Urbanski’s case, according to his online records.
“I’m shocked,” Rosey Ugo Edeh, who was visiting town to see her daughter graduate, told The Baltimore Sun. “This is a weekend of pure bliss and celebration for seniors.”
